Re: MacBook Pro shuts down unexpectedly

It's quite normal, the battery life does not follow a linear response and you can expect a sharp drop off towards the end of it's life.
Just a word of warning, certain Macbook PSUs are only rated to CHARGE the battery.. when the battery dies completely, the MBP will sometimes draw more power than the PSU is happy with which can lead to premature PSU failure.
