    I got my macbook awhile ago and my battery is very QUICKLY losing it's retaining capacity.

    I've charged my macbook 119 load cycles and I am at 81% of my original battery capacity!

    I read somewhere that if I'm below 80% my capacity before 300 loads, apple will replace my battery?

    Should I go to apple store?

    Have you calibrated, to make sure the readings are correct?

    This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions: Apple Notebook Battery FAQ

    I got that number after calibration ggjstudios. Your link says the batteries are 'designed to hold 80% of original charge after 300 charges', so then should I go? (it says removable batteries, my macbook has built-in battery (polycarbonate))

    It also says that for built-in batteries, it's 1000 cycles. If it's calibrated and still that low, take it to the Apple store.
