    I'm curious as to how many cycles have you gone through in your retina macbook.

    It's irrelevant, as everyone's computing habits are different. Some use their MBPs primarily at their desk, while others are more mobile users.

    That information isn't useful for anything. How someone else uses their computer has no bearing on how you use yours.

    How I use this information does not concern you.

    without context in how the laptop is used, how are these random numbers going to help you at all?

    14 weeks, 9 cycles.. 100% battery life.

    As you can tell I leave it plugged in a lot. The 9 cycles are just when I unplugged it to get the battery some use (heard its better that way).

    Then people would be justified in not sharing that information. If you're not disclosing the reason you want that information, why should people just blindly give it to you?

    I recommend at least letting the battery drain for a few hours once a month.

    45 cycles in 2 months, mainly use it around the house. I found it a bit too heavy to carry it around all day long.

    1 cycle, 105% health, 2 months old.

    I wonder, is there some benefit to cycling the battery every so often (besides improving calibration)?

    Oh God, I must be torturing my computer, 125 cycles. I can't believe this. Are you serious that no one ever even reached 80?

    Market research? That's going to cost you.
