    MBP 2011. 79 battery cycles. Down to 89% of capacity. Is this normal wear?

    Meant to have 80% after 1000 cycles, if it gets below that then you can get it replaced by Apple.

    Otherwise just enjoy using your machine :)

    Define "normal".

    Each an everyone of us uses their computer differently. What is normal to me may not be to you.

    I have an early 2008 MBP(non unibody) with 194 charge cycles and 75% battery health. A friend of mine with a generation before that is currently killing his second battery, the first one being replace at around 550 cycles(they were good up 'til 300 cycles, back then).
