This is how I (was) looking at your image on my 1600x900 screen:



:p

Back on topic, yeah, coconutbattery does that sometimes. I once had 120% on my Air haha. Might need a battery calibration.

The battery in my late 2008 uMBP shows a Design Capacity of 4800mAh and a Current Capacity of 5057mAh.

I am pretty sure that isn't all that unusual for a new battery. Mine only has ~22 cycles on it.

Looks like dropbox and Caffeine need to update their icons!
Have you taken any pictures of the RMBP?
Yea a lot of apps are a bit pixelated.. but this is temporary.

My late 2008 model says 106% (before and AFTER calibration), with a new batt.
I wouldnt worry... I would rejoice!
If you want to get it down to 100%, just run your battery as hard as you can, plug it in, and then do it again when its somewhat charged... Guaranteed to reduce battery life! :D

I had a 15" 2009 MBP that was two years old that had the battery show as 102%. Mine only had about 10 cycles on it after two years so I though this may have been the reason. I sold it back in January.
