Consumers Reports Now Recommends The 2016 MacBook Pro

Consumer Reports has updated their report on the 2016 MacBook Pros, and is now recommending Apple’s latest notebooks. From Consumers Reports: 

Consumer Reports has now finished retesting the battery life on Apple’s new MacBook Pro laptops, and our results show that a software update released by Apple on January 9 fixed problems we’d encountered in earlier testing.

With the updated software, the three MacBook Pros in our labs all performed well, with one model running 18.75 hours on a charge. We tested each model multiple times using the new software, following the same protocol we apply to hundreds of laptops every year.

And:

Now that we’ve factored in the new battery-life measurements, the laptops’ overall scores have risen, and all three machines now fall well within the recommended range in Consumer Reports ratings.

So the fix that Apple spoke of clearly worked. At least for Consumers Reports. But I am still hesitant to give this notebook two thumbs up considering everything else that’s wrong, misplaced and unfinished about this computer.
