    I've had my refurb rev a for a week now. I absolutely love the form factor and it has really impressed me with what it can do. (My last computer was the 1.67 Powerbook G4 with 1 gig of ram.) However the battery life concerns me. When I got the air it had 4 cycles and 97% health. 10 days later i have 15 cycles and 93% health. I'm not concerned about the cycles, but should the health be declining this fast? If not what can I do to increase it? I've tried calibrating it and it really didn't change anything.

    Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Don't believe the health meter over a few days, and it will be fine. I have seen it fluctuate on Macs. Just don't look at it, and gauge performance of the battery on how it works in the Mac instead of a virtual tool that is not accurate.

    Good luck.
