    Hi,

    I have a Macbook Pro, MC371LL. The battery has 200 charge cycles on it. CoconutBattery says the Battery Capacity is 93%

    How long should the battery last?

    it's fine, that percentage fluctuates. it will last you a long while until you have to replace it.

    Depends what you are doing.

    Typing out a report in Word/Pages or Macrumors forum surfing uses a lot less power than firing up Call of Duty.

    Surfing the Web, coding in Xcode. apps that dont use a lot of resources and power.

    OK! OK! I know I'm late, but I do have a life outside MR. (shocking, I know!) :D

    You know, you guys can post the Battery FAQ as easily as me, but since you asked:

    This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:

    I have attached a Screen Shot of the Battery Charge Status and CoconutBattery.

    As you can see at 98% there is 2:24 mins remaining. and it only has 200 Charge cycles.

    Your readings are normal. That 2 hours and 24 minutes is a constantly-changing estimate of time remaining, based on the current workload on your system. Read the Battery FAQ I posted for more details.
