Currently, my wife is on a business trip with that machine.
Hopefully, I'll also get a statement about how long it lasts on
battery once she is back ;-), and I'll re-check those values then.

That's right, but it wouldn't be supposed to affect the "Design
capacity", would it? ;)
Can anybody tell where these values actually come from? I could
perhaps even build a small microcontroller gadget, in order to query
the battery for its values offline (using IC aka SMbus) in order to
see where the mistake might be.
