Hey all,

I was wondering what sort of lifespan do people have with the Macbook Pro's. For instance, my HP Pavillion laptop is almost a year old and the battery is not lasting an hour. I used to get close to 3 hours when it was new. I did a battery check and the system tells me it is weak and needs to be replaced.

I am not happy about that, and it is one of the reasons I am here learning all I can about the Macbooks before I jump in.

Thanks,
Dean

My battery, after 8 months, is still in the same shape as when I first bought it.

It lasts around 5-7 hours.

My macbook pro is currently at 98% current battery capacity with 47 load cycles. I use mine daily for 4-5 hours. And calibrate once a month. However when I do calibrate it shows at 100% for a few days. Then lowers from there. Don't ask me why.
