Consumer Reports denies its recommendation to Apple MacBook Pro 2016

According to a Business Insider report, Consumer Reports has denied its recommendation to tech giant Apple’s latest MacBook Pro 2016 laptops because of apparent inconsistencies in the battery life of the device.

Apple’s MacBook Pro 2016 lineup consists of beastly laptops boasting an elegant and modern appearance. The 13-inch MacBook comes with a 2.0GHz dual-core i5 processor, 256GB SSD and 8GB RAM; whereas the 15-inch MacBook features a 2.6 Ghz quad-core i7 processor, 256 GB SSD and 16GB of RAM.

In denying its recommendation to Apple’s new MacBook Pro models, Consumer Reports -- one of the most thorough publications that perform testing on laptops -- said that the laptops have issues with battery life consistencies.

Drawing attention to a series of three successive tests performed on the new MacBook Pros, Consumer Reports said that “the 13-inch model with the Touch Bar ran for 16 hours in the first trial, 12.75 hours in the second, and just 3.75 hours in the third.” The publication also added: “The 13-inch model without the Touch Bar worked for 19.5 hours in one trial but only 4.5 hours in the next. And the numbers for the 15-inch laptop ranged from 18.5 down to 8 hours.”

Denying its recommendation to the new MacBook Pros, Consumer Reports said that battery life inconsistencies can unavoidably cause problems to devices, including work disturbances, unanticipated shutdowns, quick laptop battery depreciation, or some other hardware failures.
