    I bought my 13' macbook last November, and I have to say I'm pretty impressed by the battery.

    At the moment I'm on 490 charge cycles (WoW addiction drains life fast), yet surprisingly I can still run for 3+ hours battery life when not playing WoW.

    My previous 2006 white Macbook battery got fried alot quicker.

    44 cycles at 100% health still...

    I keep it plugged in most the time :eek:

    Just got my MacBook on Thursday and it's been through 6 cycles and the health keep going between 92-94% and 100%. Strange. My year and a half old WhiteBook never went below 98% the whole time I had it and it had 430 charge cycles on it.

    89 cycles and 100% Health in 10 months still, mostly plugged in.

    I can get an easy 4 hour doing basic stuff not too much multi tasking.

    I don't have a unibody MacBook but i'd like to chime in.

    I have a Mid-2007 MacBook, is my battery just a Juggernaut or are you guys using something else to check your battery health??

    I got my uMB the first week it came out, and the battery health is still at 100% with just over 40 cycles. (I also leave mine plugged in most of the time, but if I don't do it already, I make sure to do a full cycle at least once every few weeks.)

    My battery kicked the bucket last week so I had to get it replaced. Still under AppleCare so the repair was free. So right now, my unibody MacBook is sporting a brand new battery.
