    Hello everyone.

    I recently purchased a macbook pro 15, unibody. It seems great and had no problems at all.
    I want to ask something about the battery though. My mbp seem to be lasting around 4 hours in OSX and about an hour and a half in windowsXP, bootcamp.

    And that, with minimum internet usage. Is this normal?
    Another weird thing is the "Age of your mac" in coconut battery which says 123 months.
    Any suggestions?(Yes, I have already set energy saving options)

    Not quite sure what to tell you about your battery life, but I'm seeing the same problem in CoconutBattery. I got my Uni 15 MBP last week and it says that my lappie is 122 months old.

    Hi, all!

    Somehow the code that "calculates" the age of your mac based on the serial number is not up to date and these latest serial numbers originate all this confusion.

    Nothing to worry about, it's a coconut battery bug!

    I've emailed the guy that made the application over a month ago but had no answer...


    Regards

    This is because coconut battery sucks, it doesn't even give near accurate readings, sometimes i wonder if its just making up the numbers when people post screenshots here, thats why we have iStat Pro.

    That's normal - I'm getting the same thing with my unibody 15" MBP I bought last week.
