I've more than 1600, but I've seen people with almost 2000 cycles. Now it's 46% health aprox., but normally it oscillates between 49 and 51%. Lasts 3 hours of reading pdf's and that stuff (wifi on, but not using it), and 1h and a half of more intense tasks.
After almost 4 years of really intense use (and using it for almost everything), got fan replaced once (10€ or so on ebay), MagSafe powerchord will be replaced soon, logicboard replaced after spilling water over it (thanks to the insurance policy I booked just after buying this MBP, free reparation), one key of keyboard fell off and couldn't replace it manually so all keyboard also repaired... So hell, after all this, I can still work with it. Crossing fingers to last one more year waiting for Skylake Macs :D

P.S: Does anyone know how to fix that grey tone on external monitor screen captures?
P.S.2: Yes, It's not a MBA but hey, it's a Macbook =)
P.S.3: Thanks GGJstudios, couldn't care less.

I have 397 cycles on my 2010 MBP and it says health is at 86% but since the Intel graphics doesn't work well I must run my whole machine on the dedicated and that doesn't give me much battery life!
