    Is it normal for the battery of an 1 month old MacBook Pro 17" to display the Health status 98% in iStat Pro widget. The MBP is on 4 cycles and the battery was calibrated 2 times:
    First when I received it and the second time was yesterday.

    Thanks in advance.

    YES.

    The battery health status fluctuates and is almost never shown correctly.

    If it is less than 80% in under 300 cycles then you have the right to get it replaced.

    Also MRoogle has lots and lots and lots and lots of threads about battery health issues for you to be found.
