    Had the Machine for about a month... Was Brand new.

    Its on my desk all the time but i unplug it every few days and use it on the battery to keep it ok?

    But this health seems a bit lame?

    Doesn't look like there's anything wrong to me.

    It is perfectly normal if your battery health (maximum capacity) is more or less than 100%, even when brand new, or if it fluctuates up or down over time. For further details, read the CHECKING STATUS AND HEALTH section of the following link.

    This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:

    So your battery is dying by using it not plugged in?

    13 charges in 2.8 months. How many times have you completely discharged it and then fully recharged it?

    I've had the machine 30 days haha, no idea where it got the 2.8 months from :p

    But i was just surprised that it was at 96% health already that was all
