    I've had my 2011 13" baseline Macbook Pro for ~4 weeks. After 21 cycles, iStat Pro says my battery health is 94%. I've calibrated it once, about 2 weeks ago, and I use the laptop like Apple says to, by running it off of battery power most of the time. I've read about this topic in some threads, but do you think this is serious enough to ask apple for a replacement battery (I have applecare)? Thanks

    They will not replace it unless it goes below 80% before 1000 cycles.

    That is not the proper use. Read the following FAQ to see, how to use the battery.

    PS: I don't faqing quote from it, as the whole FAQ should be read.

    Battery health can slowly fluctuate depending on how you use your MBP. If nursed correctly, I reckon you could get the health back into the upper 90s.
