    hello to everubody, i just purchased a MBA and i have 2-3 questions.

    1)is there a way to certify my mac on apple so as to have the global warranty ? i am going to sweden for my master and i don't want to have only the receipt as a warranty

    2)how do we count a charge cycle ? i opened my mac for the first time yesterday ,i drained the battery ti 6% then plagged the charger till 100%. when i woke up and opened it and the battery went to 65% i saw from i stat that i had 2 cycles

    that all for the moment

    Your warranty is automatically honored anywhere in the world where there is Apple service available. You can verify remaining warranty/AppleCare coverage for any Mac by entering the serial number here.
    Read the WHAT IS A CYCLE? section of the following link. This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:

    1) The warranty is tied to the serial on your mac, so you do not have to carry the receipt around with you. You can check the warranty by going here https://selfsolve.apple.com/agreementWarrantyDynamic.do

    2) Not 100% sure, but i think any time you charge from above 50% to 80% or higher that counts as 1 cycle....anything below 50% to above 80% counts as 2 cycles

    That's not the way it works. Read the Battery FAQ for the facts.
