    I have noticed my battery not lasting as long. iStat pro says my health is 94%. The computer is 6 months old or so. I used to get 6 or so hours of doing school work, browsing the internet etc. but now its about 5 or less. Should I take it in to Apple?

    Apps like iStat and Coconut battery are not 100% accurate and should be taken with a grain of salt. Battery life will fluctuate. This should answer most if not all of your battery questions. Compliments of GGJstudios. Apple Notebook Battery FAQ

    Apple will do nothing, as the battery is still within parameters (less than 80% health with less than 1000 cycles is outside the parameters).
    Do you calibrate from time to time?

    If by calibrate you mean drain till the computer shuts off, leave it for an hour, then charge it fully yes I do. Is there another way to calibrate the battery?

    Yes, calibrate it the correct way. Read the FAQ.
