Apple’s new MacBook Pro is the first to miss out on Consumer Reports recommendation – CNBC
“A laptop’s battery life may vary from one trial to another by less than 5 percent,” Jerry Beilinson, reviewer at Consumer Reports, said in a blog post published Thursday.
“However, the widely disparate figures we found in the MacBook Pro tests, an average wouldn’t reflect anything a consumer would be likely to experience in the real world.
“Battery life is an important attribute for a laptop, and it represents a significant portion of our overall score… After factoring together our complete test results, Consumer Reports finds that all three MacBook Pro laptops fail to meet our standards for recommended models,” he added.
CNBC reached out to Apple on Friday however they were unavailable for comment. Its shares closed 0.72 percent lower on Thursday.
