Ron, if I was still getting 94% after a year, I would think myself  
very lucky. Depending on how much you are using your laptop -  
plugging into power, running on battery, etc effects how much life  
you get out of your battery. I've just had to replace my battery  
after 2 years as it would only last for 10-12 minutes, but i abuse  
the hang out of my laptop! One thing that is recommended and that is  
to ensure the battery is calibrated correctly, when you first get the  
laptop, you should charge it right up and then run it completely  
down, past the 10 minute warning until it dies. Then plug back in  
again and use as normal. Hope this helps
