    I just got my new 13'' MBP and it came with about an 86% charge. When I opened the power settings it already showed a cycle count of "2." Does apple perform charge cycles before shipping these things with the new batteries? I have a 13'' Macbook sitting right next to me that showed a cycle count of "0" when I first got it....anyone else notice this?

    what gives then?


    Update: I called Apple and they said I could take it to an Apple Store and they would replace it for free. I haven't decided if I want to go through with that..if this was a 300 cycle battery, I would probably do it..but on a battery that is supposed to be good for 1000 charge cycles, I don't see it as that big of a deal. It is more for my own peace of mind..which makes it kind of cool that Apple would still agree to replace it so I could feel better.
