    Guys, MBP is a week old and the battery health is 97%. Its a week old. Had 8 battery load cycles. Design capacity is 6900mAh and I'm at 6723mAh.

    Normal or am I just being a freak?

    And I've tried to calibrate like 3 times. Can you over calibrate? What am I to do? Rumour geniuses please inform. lol.

    There's no reason to panic. They often never actually are at 100%. It should stay in the mid 90s for most of its useful life, so that's completely normal.

    Normal.
    You only need to calibrate once every month or two. Every time you do, you're using a cycle, so don't over-calibrate.

    Read the Battery FAQ that simsaladimbamba posted. It really will answer all your battery questions.
