Yesterday I unboxed a MacBook Pro (Mid 2012) and I am disappointed that the battery has less than its "manufacturer capacity" and has 2 cycles already. Is that normal?
When I bought my MacBook Pro, it also had 2 cycles used. I think it's normal and it's probably a part of the in-factory testing.
As for the manufacture capacity - it's perfectly normal for it to deteriorate, but it's going to do it gradually (and slowly if you take care of your battery)
How much capacity has it actually lost?
I unboxed my new MacBook Pro (Mid 2012) yesterday and it have 0 cycle
So i don't think it's ok !
