Battery Cycle count of 801 what does this mean good or bad?
It means that you've probably had your Macbook about 4 or 5 years and have recharged the battery in full 801 times.
This is neither good or bad. It's just a fact used to determine how much you've used your Macbook on battery.
As long as you are getting an acceptable length of time while using your Macbook on battery, then you should be fine. At some point in the future, the battery will begin to fail and last for shorter and shorter amounts of time and eventually may even drop-out completely. At that point, you'll either buy a new battery for your Macbook from Apple or buy a new Macbook.
If this answer helps you to understand the cycle count (and it should), please rate my answer as either 3 or 4 thumbs-up (1 or 2 thumbs up are like saying my answer was useless or barely appropriate)
