    Its a new'11 MBP. Is it normal for the battery health to be going down that fast? Or should i take it into the apple store to get it checked out?

    The health jumps around all the time, my 2010 with 400 cycles goes from 88-97% health. I wouldn't worry about it.

    It's normal; my MBP went from 98% health to 93% health in about 40-50 cycles, starting from when it was brand new.

    my laptop shipped with 98% health, 4 cycles now.

    should be fine.

    Normal, mine jumped from 99% to 87% and then to 94% and is now 99%. All in two years.

    And since the following is a good learning resource, but often gets overlooked or not even read completely, I just post it again (and will do so the next twenty two thousand times a similar question gets asked):
