    It simply means your battery has fallen under 80% health(which simply means it can only hold 80% of the charge it used to hold back when it was new) and it's nothing to worry about.

    Batteries age with time and use, there's nothing wrong with your computer. If it worries/bothers you that much, buy and install a new battery and the message will be gone.

    I would take it to the apple store. If the battery is still below 1000 load cycles, they should replace it for free, since you're still under applecare.

    If they refuse to replace it, you can basically ignore the service battery. It won't hurt your machine. Just be aware that it holds less charge now, so you will run out of power earlier.

    You did not tell how long you have used the machine. If it's under a month, return the machine and get a new one. Else, take the machine to an Apple store and ask them to check. If your battery is faulty, they must replace the battery under warranty. If both do not apply, and the battery is holding a charge reasonably for how much you have used it, ignore it.

    Identify the problem and the responsibility first. You only buy a new battery if that is definitely your responsibility (and needs) to do so.

    And dude, where do you work? Do they hire?
