Consumer Reports has battery problems with new MacBook Pro

USA Today:

The reviews are in, and for the first time, Consumer Reports has not awarded recommended ratings for MacBooks.

The latest batch of MacBook Pro laptops exhibited “battery life results (that) were highly inconsistent from one trial to the next,” the magazine said in a review published Thursday.

“Battery life is an important attribute for a laptop, and it it represents a significant portion of our overall score,” reviewer Jerry Beilinson wrote. “After factoring together our complete test results, Consumer Reports finds that all three MacBook Pro laptops fail to meet our standards for recommended models.”

Regardless of your opinion of Consumer Reports, this does not look good for Apple. Apple refused comment on the report but expect them to, in the New Year, address the issue.
