Not at all. I had one and returned it. Never got more than 5-6 hours, even with power saving gymnastics. I did end up getting a 2016 15" and the battery, again, is nowhere near 10 hours, ever, but I like it anyhow. Apple needs to revise it's aggressive marketing - it's simply not true and false.

But if you want this machine, it's still great, despite the overly optimistic battery estimate. I'd recommend looking for an open box one (there are lots of returned units) and haggling for an extra 20% off. Pretty easy to get it for sub $1000 if you play your cards right. Not a bad deal.

Yep, 10 hr battery life is if you put brightness at lowest settings and don't do anything but just some browsing.

Regular use with full brightness yields 4-5 hrs of battery which is still OK.

  I agree, most return/open box items are in great shape. 
People return these due to remorse buying, (they buy and then they realize it's too expensive for them for just browsing the internet and email use, so return them).
