hey all, new here. I just got my mac book in march. I absolutly love it. Just today, ive noticed my battery hasn't been charging to 100%. It just stays charged at 96%. I checked my battery in <my info> and it says its charged but it says full charge capcity is (MAH)5324, but it says remaining 5113(mah). So its not fully charging i believe.

Someone know anything?

might just need to be calibrated.

try the instructions located on apple's site, here:
http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=86284

make sure to follow the second set of instructions for a macbook. and make sure you've got some time to complete the process.
