I find this is typical wear for these new 9-cells. My 9-cell is at 25% since last July, a friend of mine who got a laptop about a month before is at 24% (he's on Toshiba). We both charge/discharge very often. Another guy I know with a 9-cell is at 6% since last September, and he rarely discharges. Anyway, I've owned my laptop longer but discharge less often than you, and I'm around the same battery level. I'd say that's just how it goes these days with Li-Ion.
