    I opened the box yesterday it was at 88 % used it quite a bit and lasted a while with brightness 4 notches below the middle.

    After a full charge last night its been on for 32 mins with Skype video chat and same brightness and it says i have 2 hours remaining? Does this thing need to get cycled and whatever over time and is the disparity usually THIS big? cause thats a HUGE difference

    As the many other threads about this same, tired issue will attest, there is nothing wrong with your battery and time remaining is virtually meaningless, as it depends on what your computer is running at that instant.

    You do realize that Skype video chat is a heavy task? It'll definitely kill the battery quicker than say browsing the web.

    Your battery time remaining will contantly change over the life of a single charge.

    There is no battery issue unless you are getting a short time regardless of what you do.

    You wont be able to figure that out until you use the MBA for a while.
