    I bought a rMBP 2 days ago and returned it yesterday(dead pixels+ghosting). I got a new one and iStats indicates a 97% health and 6 battery cycles? What do you think about this?
    + there is something under back pannel that,when pushed(how would you normally hold the laptop by using your left hand) clicks similar to a trackpad button..what about this? :confused:

    Have a great day guys, can't wait to hear from you!

    Battery is fine. Don't get hung up over those readings.

    It is perfectly normal if your battery health (maximum capacity) is more or less than 100%, even when brand new, or if it fluctuates up or down over time. It's also not uncommon for a new battery to have a few cycles on it, likely from testing. For further details, read the CHECKING STATUS AND HEALTH section of the following link.

    The link below should answer most, if not all, of your battery/charging questions. If you haven't already done so, I highly recommend you take the time to read it.

    this is my 4th one... all my previous ones had dead pixels/severe RI - LG Panels.. I'm trying to figure out whether this clicking represents something suspicious or it's a spacing limiter that activates and clicks under pressure

    Mine came with two dents on bottom, yet I chose to keep it because I was satisfied with the computer.

    If you are unsatisfied with your computer, you should be able to decide for yourself whether or not to keep it.

    update: just came from apple store, all three rMBP13 2013 were making that click. I suppose it's a generic thing, it's the spacing limiter that clicks:rolleyes:

    enjoy your macbook alphaod!
