    I'm attaching the battery stats for my Macbook air 13 mid-2012 model, are these normal stats considering it's usage? Should I be looking to replace it anytime soon?

    If your Mac is still covered by AppleCare, you should take it to Apple to have them replace the battery. As it is below 80% health with less than 1000 cycles, it should be covered as being defective.

    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.

    thanks, went through that. I bought it more than a year ago so it's not covered by the warranty, although in Europe the warranty should be 2 years not 1.

    It still wouldn't hurt to take it to Apple to see what they say. They have been known to bend the rules from time to time, so it's worth a shot.
