    New MacBook Air just arrived! Do I need to prime the battery or do anything else to help get the best battery life? I was planning on charging it until it turns green (from amber) and then let'er rip. Any other ideas/suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Keith

    you definitely need to calibrate it. i had to calibrate it twice before optimum performance, but now it's doing nicely.

    Read the Apple Notebook Battery FAQ that spinnerlys posted a link to.
