    Hello!

    I was wondering if any of you have had issues with battery life with your notebook computers? I purchased a 15-in macbook pro in March of 2008. Lately I have had some serious issues with my battery. First, it started with a decrease in battery life about a year ago. I went from about 3 hours per charge to about 2 hours. I figured this was normal since the battery was rated to be at 80% capacity after 300 cycles. Over the past 8 months or so, I've gone from a 2 hour charge to an 11 minute charge with a charge cycle count of 326. My current maximum capacity is around 250mAh.

    Has anyone else had these issues? Is it because I've had it for 3 years? Could it be defective? And if so, will Apple do anything about it, or just tell me to buy a new one (which have horrible reviews from their website).

    thanks!
