Calibrating Your MacBook/MacBook Pro’s Battery

What’s Your Switch Story?

I purchased my first Mac on June 2004. It was a 1.5 Ghz 15″ Powerbook. I’ve been wanting to switch to a Mac since I saw the Powerbook G3 of a former office mate. At first I fell in love with […]

Battery blues

The battery of my two-year-old 12” Albook is showing signs of serious wear.
Recently it was hovering at 57% charging capacity and was giving me about two-and-a-half hours of juice. Then in the space of two days that setting dived 12%, and I was getting an hour less Mac time on the road. Additionally, recharging the […]
