    Hi everyone,
    So recently I purchased the new 2010 13" macbook pro.
    The problem is, today is the 6th day after purchase, and the battery could only be charged up to 99%.
    The Fully Charge capacity is 5871 mAh, but charge remaining is only 5763 mAh.


    Is this normal? or should I take it back, because I'm still in the return/exchange period.

    Totally normal, usually if you unplug it while its at 95-100% it wont charge until it drops below 95% again. Let the battery get low and fully charge it up again and it will be fine. Nothing to worry about

    Calibrate the battery. Run that hoe all the way down till its dead. Then leave it dead for 5 hrs. Then charge it. I thought i was trippin out on my I7 15inch but its all gravy now.

    Apple recommends doin that once a month. Id prolly wait a lil longer.
