    Specs:
    Mac Book Pro 17" 2GB Ram, Intel Core Duo
    charge on battery
    i just bought my mac book pro about 2 weeks ago, and when I look at the health of the battery it says, 100% but when I look at charge it says 96% where as before it said 97% ??? but when looking at istat in the dashboard it says charged, as in the battery has been charged. My question would be is this the full capacity or is the battery supposed to be charged to 100% ????? I unplug it everyday, but turn off the computer at night and it is plugged into the adapter... any idea's ...!!!!

    thanks

    if u unplug it while its charging and its higher or equal to 94% itll show green next time you plug it in, and it will not charge to 100. It will of course charge all the way up if you run it under 94% and leave it plugged in to green.

    so basically it will charge all the way to 100 if i leave it plugged in and don't remove it while it is charging.
