    Alright, so today I ordered a shiny refurb MBP :)

    So, as I am prepping myself for my first mac, I was wondering:

    How is the battery life on a refurbished MBP?

    Is it any different from a new one? (or is it a new battery?)

    Thanks :apple::)

    Oh, and also:

    Would there be any cycles on the battery?

    i believe battery is brand new or above 95%.
    dont quote me on it though.

    While they don't specifically mention batteries, it should be as good as new:

    I don't think they're new batteries. Had mine 18 days now and since I hadn't used the battery much at all since I got until yesterday, I didn't even think to check the cycles. It's at 12 cycles and 88% health. Got a little suspicious when it only lasted an hour running Windows under BootCamp. Going to try to calibrate it and see how that goes now.

    Mine came at 99% health with 1 cycle and has since moved to 100% with 31 cycles
