    Hi!
    Im a kinda worried and need some expert's advice.

    I've bought my MPB 15 (5,4 mid 2009) in the beginning of april 2010. Im getting about 5 hs of battery ( low usage) .. so I decided to download coconut to check my battery status.. and to my surprise.. according to it my MPB is 9 months old and battery capacity is about 6546 (6500 originally ) Did the battery aged all those months that my MPB was stocked?

    Should I contact Apple?
    Thanks for your help.

    You can contact Apple but they won't do anything about it since the battery is probably fine.

    Yes, but because the current and original capacity is the same or better, I think you are doing something to cause the low battery life.

    Everything seems normal to me, but you left out the most important thing: Battery cycles.

    considering it's rated for "up to" 7 hours - I think 5 hours is fine. You have another 6 or 7 months of the standard applecare for it to get worse. If it gets considerably worse over the next few months, then I'd take it in.
