    Even if its health its fine for now, if it drops below 80% before 300 cycles its an issue.

    If it's health, not that unusual. I'm up to 83 cycles and it took about 20 to really start being consistent. Mine started at 93-95% health and been a steady 97% for about 40 or so cycles now. It actually got better over that time. We'll see where it's at in a year.

    Battery Health Status

    I've noticed that mine reports 94%-95% when on battery, and 97% when charging.

    okay . . . just fired up the AIR after a couple of days and nothing happens. Plugged it in and thought it was charging. Now the battery says 0% health and 5 cycles and nan% next to charge on my istat widget. I had to reset the date and time when I turned it on as well as re-input my wireless password.

    Went in and they confirmed the problem with their usual air of snottiness and after some pushing gave me a new laptop last night.

    don't worry, sounds normal to me..the battery display thing isn't 100% accurate. if it drops lower then worry...perhaps.
