Guys, I just bought a Macbook Pro 13" Core i7 Model last week, and I noticed that the battery capacity is draining a bit fast. I just don't know though since this is my first Macbook Pro, before I had this Machine, I had an iMac so I don't have any idea on how the battery work and how I should maintain it. Right now, I just use it as it is, charge it when the battery meter drops up to 20% and then remove it from the socket when the battery is charged.

Here is a picture of the battery health: http://i.imgur.com/F7tIw.jpg

when you you use it make sure you use all the power on the macbook pro till it reaches 0% so the computer knows what a cycle is. the new macbook pros have a chip inside the battery that tells which cells need more power forget the name of the system. anywho, thats why you cant move the battery of the new macbook pros. http://www.apple.com/macbookpro/features.html#battery

I think its a factory mistake on the battery ... Usually they endure 2 hours of battery life... You should go talk to the manufacturer or the company that sold you your laptop... and don't forget the warranty. If you don't want to wait ... buy a new battery
