    Hello guys! Can anyone (who owns the 2013 rMBP-13) look in HWMonitor and tell what is the current 'Designed capacity' and 'Full charge' one?

    I get 63300 for designed and 64570 for full charged..


    I wonder why these two numbers are different.. Aren't they suppose to be equal?

    According to coconut battery, I got the exact same.
    design = 6330mAh
    current = 6450mAh

    load cycles = 1 :D (just opened the box during lunch)

    there's probably some "engineering overhead." Also remember that battery capacity calculations are only estimates, as the battery is based on chemical reactions that are affected by temperature and other factors.

    Thanks! So it seems to be standart, I guess..

    BTW, congrats to the new rMBP owner! :)
