My MacBook Pro battery cycle count is almost at 2000 on my Late 2008 15" Macbook Pro.

I am wondering has anyone reached this high a count before?

And also, Apple, I feel I deserve some kind of reward for highlighting how reliable your products are!

    Nope. You the man! However, this is not Apple. This is a user forum. We're all users like yourself. But, you still the man!

    Replace the battery NOW!  Apple advertising says up to 1000 cycles, not past 1000 cycles.  You are making them look like liars and they may send a goon squad after you, take away your MBP and force you to use a PC.

     

    A wooden nickel says you won't make 3000 cycles.

     

    Ciao.

    Though one might hope for more, but 850 cycles is not that unreasonable, especially when compared with the prior removable batteries which were rated at up to 300 cycles.  The results you have achieved are certainly remarkable.  Maybe the Pope visited the factory and blessed the one you have.

     

    Best of future luck with your battery.

     

    Ciao.
