    This is non scientific, but I used to have a 2009 MBP 15"

    I now have a 13" MBA 2011 edition.

    It seems to me with very similar use case patterns that the MBA Battery Cycle count increments faster.

    Is it just me or do others see that.

    I know a cycle is supposed to be the addition of usage - 100, but it stills seems quicker to me though

    There is no difference between Mac models in how cycles work. Read the WHAT IS A CYCLE? section of the following link. This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:

    Is it a matter of the MBP having a larger battery, thus requiring fewer charges for the same time worked?

    I think that is it, MBP has much more capacity
