Hi there,
I currently have Sierra (10.12.6) on my MacBook but looking at updating to High Sierra. Just wondering what everyone else's experience is with High Sierra on this model MacBook?

 

I've heard battery life is worse and they still have some bugs to work out. Any information would be greatly appreciated!

No major issues running* High Sierra on my ancient ("Late 2011") MacBook Pro, so I imagine your relatively new laptop will be fine.

 

 

 

*Well, more of a "Fast Walk" really, as the hardware is getting on a bit now.

 

FYI on https://browser.geekbench.com/mac-benchmarks, my Macbook scores 3072, and the "MacBook Mid 2017 i5 @ 1.3Ghz scores 3610; so it should be faster.

No issues running High Sierra on my wife's 2016 MacBook.  In fact it runs a lot better than it did with Sierra.
