    The pictures speak for themselves. Is it a software glitch or a batter issue?

    The stated battery capacity is a rough estimate. There is no reason to be concerned, my PowerBook's battery says 4600 when it should be something like 4400. Calibrating your battery will only give a more accurate reading.

    Oh, thanks for reassuring me. I thought that the battery had some fairly accurate way of reporting the available charge.

    I understand that all new batteries are tested. If they met or are ABOVE the standard, the MBP being 5600, they are used. If below they fail. You just happened to get a battery that reads above the standard.


    Please correct me if I am wrong.
