    Hey, quick question.

    Do you guys think that 60 battery cycles in 9 months on my macbook pro retina 13 inch is good? Or should I try to reduce it a little?

    Just plug your computer in when you can and run it off of the battery when you need to. I wouldn't worry about it.

    Much cycles. Very battery.

    That sounds fine. Just continue to use it in a normal manner and try not to worry about it too much.

    Any idea how many cycles the macbook pro retina 13 inch ( 2013 late ) can take before seeing noticeable less battery time? Isn't it like 1000?

    It really depends, but the old rule of thumb was no less than 80% capacity within 1000 cycles if I am not mistaken. I could be wrong and I am not sure if this still applies today.

    Its mostly irrelevant and nothing to worry about. My MBP has 1100 cycles at 4yrs old and 89% of its capacity left.

    It is but time has a big impact on batteries too. That is why your 1000 cycles "guarantee" only applies within the 3 year applecare period. After that it is considered a consumable item and it is your responsibility to pay for any replacements.

    Basically your battery will begin to die badly sometime between 4 and 6 years of age there is very little you can do about it and it seems to be luck of the draw wether you get a long or not so long lasting one. Although they do seem to be getting better as the years go by.
