    Hi there

    I'm about to inbox my MacBook pro, which was delivered yesterday. Are there any steps I should take in regards to charging the system and just general setup. This is my first mac and I'd like to take the necessary steps to ensure my baby is up and running

    Thanx in advance

    I'm dumbfounded you waited this long :)

    As others have said - plug her and and let her fly. You will love it. Congrats on the purchase.

    You can say that again! I'm working my butt off right now to be able to pay for the whole thing and at my current rate, I should be able to purchase it mid-end of February. The wait is killing me!

    A MBP is like a good wine. Let it ripen in the box for at least 96 hours, ideally at temperatures around 18C or 64F.

    I actually let mine ripen in the box for the full 14 day return period. Mainly because I still had the old one it was replacing, and I was trying to decide if the old one was still working out OK for me, or if I really did need to upgrade it. Once the 14 day return period had passed, then I felt better about opening it. That is probably a little strange, but it works for me :)
