    Hi,

    I read around that the new MacBooks should have at least a 5200 full charge capacity. I checked my MacBook capacity and it is about 4200. Just curious if someone could take a look at my specs and let me know if this is something I should get replaced or if it's completely fine.

    Thanks!

    I'm pretty sure the new macbooks had their batteries lowered to around 4.2k. So you should be fine.

    Ah, ok. That sounds good then. Doing a read through on Google showed an average of around 4800, but that must of been the older ones or the MacPro?

    Thanks.

    CoconutBattery is a nice app for this. Although for some reason it reports my current capacity as 5102 mAh, the original capacity was 5020 mAh. Looks like my careful battery management is working pretty well =]

    Mine shows 5020 mAh original, 5422 mAH now without any careful battery management.

    If you have the Aluminum MB then you're looking at 4200. The older ones had bigger batteries.
