So like a whole bunch of other users, i'm being really OCD about my new MBA's battery health (its my baby). iStat is telling me that it's now at 97% after i've had it for a week :s It started at 99% but with only 9 cycles, seems to be going down a little fast.

I realise it's not really an issue, but having seen other people managing to keep their battery's in the 90% area over 300 cycles in, I was wondering where I can get some more info about caring for it? Thanks :)
