Hello, I have an early 2011 MBP that I received the first week of March 2011. So far everything has been super. My battery condition is listed as 'normal' in the upper right status icon. Right now according to iStat and coconutBattery I am getting about 78% of capacity (fluctuated around ~80% today). I have used about 1196 cycles (see attached). So no major problems now but the capacity is definitely less than before. I was wondering if it was recommended I replace the battery, or if I should wait until the condition drops below 'normal'. I found the directions to calibrate the battery on Apple's website <http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1490> and am currently following step 3 (running down the battery on battery power). For any other users out there, do you have a similar cycle count (whether or not you have a 2011 model)? Have you noticed a similar drop in capacity, or not so much? Also, somewhat on a sidenote, but saw in other threads issues where users had batteries that expanded. Are those generally the result of faulty batteries in the beginning, or is that something that can manifest after a long period of time? Thanks.
