    I am disappointed because lately my macbook pro 13 "2.26Ghz has given a lot of problems .. I'll write a few to see if I can help:
    - In some web pages when I scroll, the page gets a lot of lag!
    - The health of my battery went from 100% to 94% in less than 2 days
    - The maximum battery charge and 97% and not 100% .. yesterday was 98%
    - The trackpad does not work right now, the multitouch with 3 and 4 fingers ..
    - With a minimum brightness and wifi off my battery lasting about 4 hours

    the Macbook is about 1 months

    What should I do?

    Sorry for my bad English!

    Thanks

    All of your battery issues are pretty much meaningless at this point.

    Trackpad issues: Do you have multitouch "on"- as in, are the gestures configured in System Preferences -> Trackpad?

    4 hours is very very good. The percentages of battery health don't mean much, and they can be off by a few percents. Don't worry about it.

    I would take those battery percentages with a fine grain of salt. My mbp is 3 weeks old and showing 96% in coconut battery. Then again I haven't yet done a calibration, which can make a world of difference.

    If your trackpad is faulty contact Apple...simple as that.

    Mine is also like 3 weeks old and iStat is showing about 93% health. Maybe I'll calibrate over the holiday but I'm not too worried about it. Still can get about 5-6 hours out of it.

    Hi, Curtido, although I cannot say anything useful regarding the battery life issue, or the scrolling in the browser, I can suggest installing the Mac OS X 10.5.8 Combo Update to fix the problem with your trackpad, it helped me a little while ago when 4 finger swipe stopped working.

    Hope this helps.;)
