    Ok my macbook is 3 weeks old. After a few days i checked the battery with coconut battery and it was at 93 percent i calibrated and it did nothing but one day i got it back up to 100 percent then after a few more days it went down to 96 now its at 95. Should i be worried or ? Cause some peoples say theirs goes up and down alot.

    There's nothing to worry about. The software that reports the capacity isn't always accurate, and if you calibrate your battery regularly it will be fine.

    Most batteries can last upwards of 300 before they performance is non existant. AKA it dies in like 30 minutes.

    Use coconut battery to give you some better indication of your battery life. It is a free download. Battery life gradually deteriorates, but it also depends on how you treat the battery as to how fast this happens.
