    I have two questions:
    My Macbook pro is 10 months old now. My battery has done 130 cycles. Yesterday the battery indicator said there was still 14% left, but then it all of a sudden the battery died. So I decided to calibrate the battery (i do that regularly). Now, it says the battery health is about 72%. When I check the system profile, it says BATTERY STATUS: check battery.

    Does anyone know if this is normal/what that means?

    The second question: how can I change the size of the symbols on the desktop?
    Thank you,
    Sanne

    I had this problem on my MacBook Pro and Apple replaced the battery under warranty. It is normal to have your capacity degrade with time, but when the battery starts behaving unpredictably, that is unusual and should be covered. Give Apple a call.
