    I got my MBA about 2 weeks ago.
    I have noticed that now when I try and recharge it the bar only shows it goes to 97% to 100%. No matter if it's on while I charge it or it's sleeping.

    I have tried to calibrate my battery once...doesn't seem to have made a difference...

    I just wanna know if this is "normal"...:confused:

    Yes that is normal. It will not charge incrementally from 97% (sometimes 95%) to 100% until it has been drained lower than that percentage.

    I don't let that bother me. I find that it does eventually get up to 100% on subsequent charging cycles.

    I use mine mostly at home and have the power cord attached most of the time.
