    i have a early unibody macbook 13" 2.4 ghz my battery is still 100% health and under 100 cycles but my sister just bought the late umbp 13" 2.26ghz she also has 100% health and about 30 cycles but i noticed that her battery takes about half the time to charge ~2 hours or so but mine need about 2 hours to go from 70%-100% is this normal? she has the newer battery and i have the older.... is anybody else having this issue? or is this a common thing?

    It is probably a difference in the battery technology. Aren't the newer computer supposed to charge faster?

    It's just because they are different batteries. The new internal batteries charge a lot faster than the old ones.
