    Hey everyone...I've been looking around and can't really find anything, so I'm bringing it here.

    After noticing some depleted battery life and missing a calibration or two, I decided to run Coconut Battery. I was told my battery capacity was at 77%, so I did a fresh calibration.

    Now I'm at 75% capacity with a 13 month old Macbook. Is this about what I should expect at this point? Thanks for any info.

    I have a 14 month Macbook and my battery was part of the battery "issues" they had with the Macbooks. So they replaced it for me around April of this year. I would call applecare of take it to the store and see if they'll replace it. Even if you are out of Applecare. All I've ever owned were PC laptops and I would only get about 18 months at best out of the battery. After that it would only hold an hour at best.:mad:
