    A couple months, but it was used when I got it. It had 489 cycles when I booted it up the first time, but I haven't had OS X on it since the day I bought it so I haven't been keeping track.

    Early 2008 MB New battery 4 cycles.
    Late 2008 MB only about 100 then battery swelled (2008-2013), about 50 on the new one.
    Early 2009 MB forget, but 351 since mid 2012 on 2nd battery
    Mid 2009 MBP 13" umm, ballpark 300-400
    Mid 2010 MBP 15" (2.4) 700 something on original battery. Works fine.
    Mid 2010 MBP 15" (2.53) less than 150 on original battery. Desk bound mostly.
    Late 2013 rMBP (bought last month) 11. The thing lasts so darn long on a charge.

    I'd love to get a count off my phones though, my Droid Incredible went through over 1,000 cycles on the original 1300 mAh battery, still ticking too. Got it in 2010 and retired in Jul 2012. But still sees use as a camera, GPS, and web device.

    And my iPod touch I've had since 2010 would probably be close to 1,000 by now. It was used almost daily till I sold it a bit ago.

    *Mac's in bold were mine since new, all others are preowned.*

    My 2011 Macbook Pro is right now at 98 cycles (CoconutBattery claims it's at 90% capacity), however that figure is somewhat misleading as I rarely end up using even half the charge between recharges.

    Brought it down to less than 10% last week and the previous time I did that was over a year ago. Interestingly CoconutBattery at the same time dropped it's estimate of the battery's capacity from 94% (taken a week earlier) to 90%.

    Battery charge level readings are estimates, and not perfectly accurate.
    Every time you charge doesn't represent a cycle, so if you drain it to 60% and recharge, you're only using 40% of a cycle. Read the WHAT IS A CYCLE section of the Battery FAQ to understand how cycles work.

    The link below should answer most, if not all, of your battery/charging questions. If you haven't already done so, I highly recommend you take the time to read it.
