    Should I take my MacBook Pro in for service?

    I have almost 180 charge cycles on my battery. My computer is a June '09 revision 2.53GHz 13"

    I've been calibrating my battery, and my life seems to be diminishing. Yesterday, it said I had a full charge capacity of 7800 mAH! (I think that's about 2000 more than the battery can handle) Today, I took this screenshot, and as you can see the capacity has drastically dropped.

    I've calibrated it about 5 times this week, and the range STILL varies every day!
    iStat Pro reads 74% health.

    What should I do? I still get about 4 hours of life, and whenever i calibrate it, the unit drops down to 0% really quickly, then runs for about 45 minutes. After that, it reads 2%, and runs for another 3.5 hours. I'm really quite perplexed as to what is happening, I'm thinking it might even be my logic board...

    Thank you for your help!

    Yeah, even system profile says to check battery.

    So take it and see what they can do for ya, probably replace the battery as even with that amount of cycles for it shouldnt act that out of the ordinary.
