    I'm sorry, but I'm not understanding the problem. What do you mean when you say that you checked the number of "cycles"? What kind of cycle? Explain your mention of "3 hrs of usage in 90%".

    Purchased 'new' from Apple? It might have been one they did a quality control/bench check on... I wouldn't worry about it.

    Nothing to worry about. 5 battery cycles is nothing. I think apple says the battery will retain 80% of its original charge after 1000 battery cycles. Everything will be fine.
