    So that's it. Just got my brand new macbook and it's perfect other than mooing sometimes. However I noticed that the battery does not charge until the charge drops below 95% If I plug in the adapter at say 96 or 97% it just says that the battery is fully charged. When I plug in the adapter at 94% battery life then it picks up and charges it to full.

    What do you guys think? Should I declare it DoA??

    I tried re-calibrating the battery and everything. Still the same problem.

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    That's normal. It's a mechanism that prevents constant charging and discharging, which can shorten the lifetime of your battery. :)
