    I've been following the battery life on my MBP (15", late 2011) using an app called coconutbattery. In the eleven months since I've bought this notebook, the machine went from holding about 98% charge to around 87 to 88% nowadays.

    I know batteries can't last forever, and eventually they die out, but is this rate to be expected?
