MBP13 Battery 75% Capacity

I have an early 2011 MBP13" bought 5-11-2011 using Coconut I see my battery has cycle count = 129. I use it all day every day moving around on charger and off try not to let it die very often. Is this normal for the battery to have lost 25% of its "charge" capacity in less than a year ? Am I doing something wrong with how I use it ? any idea if this is something I should get replaced under warranty if that even applies.

Sorry I just noticed this is in the wrong forum please move it it you need to

Thanks

No, it's not normal for it to be at less than 80% capacity before 1000 cycles. It looks like you're putting enough cycles on to keep it healthy. I'd take it to Apple and let them check to see if it's defective. This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:
