    Ok, so i just got my macbook pro 13 inch (amazing machine btw). Now, i installed coconutbattery, and it says the age of my macbook pro is 8 weeks old, and that it has 10 battery load cycles. Is this normal? It hasnt even been a full day since i have gotten it.

    It's definitely possible that it was manufactured 8 weeks ago.

    However, it usually comes with only 1-3 cycles. If the machine looks new (and you got it from Apple directly), odds it's a new machines.

    Mine had 0 cycles but the age was 3 months. Is that odd?

    No. So you battery wasn't tested.

    I actually got it from Amazon. It seemed that it was new. Everything was completely sealed. Hmmm...it all seems kinda weird.

    From Amazon or from someone that advertises on Amazon?

    Ha! Lucky you!

    When I got mine a couple of months ago, I installed coconutbattery, I had three or four load cycles - common for testing, but the age of my macbook? 104 months!

    That would put my machine at over 8 years old!....hmmmmm, possibly back before the thing had even been conceived in the mind!

    I wouldnt read too much into this sort of thing in all honesty, if your machine flys and has no marks, who cares! If aging parts etc are detrimental to the machine and effects performance, tell apple and theyll replace

    otherwise, just enjoy!

    I just received my 15" Macbook Pro yesterday afternoon (direct from Apple online store). It says my battery is four weeks old.

    There should be a CoconutBattery sticky so that these threads don't come up every two hours.

    I wouldnt worry about it too much, i bought mine directly from a UK Apple Store on the 1st of july, apparently it was manufactured way back in May ;)
