Miscellanea

  • Apple alleged the slightly longer battery life (up to 10 hours on one charge) to win over the nearest rival: Windows Surface Pro 3 with 9 hours of life. Yet the promised life boost came not from the battery but from the Broadwell CPU better performance. Intel Broadwell is up to 30% more power efficient.
  • The case is held on with Apple’s proprietary Pentalobe screws to resist tampering with the insides. You need a special screwdriver if you’re going to upgrade your laptop. Keep in mind that the only upgradeable part here is the SSD drive – and this is identical to the models of 2013 year, so you won’t have any difficulties finding a spare part – while the RAM is soldered to the motherboard.
