    Hello,
    I have a 15 inch June 2009 MacBook Pro that has 7 hour battery built in. I only had it for 2 weeks and I only have 3 cycles on the battery. My question is that why under System Profiler, it told me that the battery condition is normal? Where my other 13" MBP that my brother owns for about a month is showing Good.

    i tried calibrating it, and it still shows Normal. Coconut battery says I have 100% battery health. But still, it's kinda annoying for me.

    Comments and replies will be much appreciated. Thanks!

    Yes. You can simply go to the left hand corner of your screen where there is an Apple logo. Click the Apple logo and go to about this Mac. Go to more info, and finally, click power. There you can find information about your internal battery.

    My Rev C MacBook Air also says normal under system profile. I wouldn't worry about it unless your battery is not lasting very long.
