Apple clearly thinks the 'time remaining' estimates were causing more harm than good for users, so the new battery life status menu will now instead only show a percentage of remaining battery life, like on iOS devices, which should offer an accurate prediction. The change will be introduced for all in today's macOS update.

Apple claims that the reports of terrible battery on the new 15" MacBook Pro life are inaccurate, and in response, they removed the "time remaining" indicator.

i thought the new MacBooks did go up to 16GB RAM? i thought the argument was that they didn't go past 16GB RAM?

A lot of people wanted 32GB as like you say a lot of people run VM's
