Hey, so i'm @ 96% battery power, and on my energy saver it says that it has about 2:55 left.

you're telling me.. in 3 minutes my mac is gonna run out of battery life?

is this correct?

this is not the latest mbp but the one before it (with a button under the track pad)

My MBP has been plugged in for a day and it's still sitting at 99% battery full. Any reason why it hasn't hit 100% yet?

My mind is the weapon. Everything else is merely an accessory.
