    My new 13/256/i5 doesn't seem to be charging the battery fully...

    Clicking on the battery icon in the menu bar says that the battery is fully charged, but whenever the login screen appears after rebooting or waking from sleep, the battery shows 98%. Is anyone else experiencing this?

    Normal, as the numerous other threads on this exact same issue will attest.
