    Hi, I have the new 2.0ghz macbook, and I tried calibrating my battery yesterday, and I followed all the steps, but today my battery health went down from 100% to 99% and the charge capacity went from 4175 to 4074, which is less than the original capacity.. is something wrong or am i being paranoid?

    It is rather standard. I have yet to have a new battery stay at 100% health after the first calibration, if it did, it wasn't long before it dropped down to something in the 97% realm.

    Where do you find the charge capacity?

    And would anyone care to link to the calibrating instructions? Much appreciation :)

    I have iStat running, but no where can I find battery options for iStat, nor can I see my battery health.

    make sure in the options section to select the exhuast fan as the heat temp sensor, other than that.....there are like 10 sections or so, battery, cpu, fans, hard drive, network, memory, uptime, processes and so forth....I dunno what to tell you. I click on battery and it tells me my health and cycles

    iStat nano shows the battery info at it's finest.
