    Read online my model MBP usually has 1,000 cycles. I checked and I am over 1,400 cycles.

    Wondering why it hasn't died yet. Also, the condition says "good".

    I am getting about 4 hours on a full charge right now.

    Time to get a new battery?

    You are probably close to needing a replacement. My MBP is close to yours in cycles (1301) and it keeps flipping between telling me it is "good" or "fair". Once your "design capacity" drops below 80 % (mine is at 78 %), I am not sure how long things will last. It is not going to just die on you, but you should start thinking about a replacement in the near future.

    4 hours is still pretty good and I get very much the same. I am not rushing out to replace mine until it get's to be a little more critical.

    Can not remember how much battery life I got when I first bought the machine.

    I plan to pick up a 2017 Macbook 16GB in the near future.

    How much you guys think I can sell my current 2013 MacbookPro 13' 8GB 250SSD for?

    Just read online that the original battery life is like 9 or more hours.

    So if I am getting 4 hours now, means I should def get a new battery.
