Now, GGJstudios, before you post that link to your favourite Apple Notebook Battery FAQ - I have read it. Now, my question. The battery in my MBP is designed to last up to 1000 full cycles BEFORE it reaches ≤80% capacity. It's highly unlikely I'd get to 1000 charges in my first year of use, so, if I were to buy AppleCare (I don't have it yet) would it cover my battery if it say, got to 800 cycles and began displaying 75% capacity in it's second year of use? I've read the fineprint and I'm confused as to this passage, I'm not sure if failing to reach 1000 cycles in a defect in the battery or not.
