    You shouldn't need to do the charging and depleting like older cordless phones, but it's definitely a good idea to give it a nice full charge anyway. Get that crisp looking "1" beside the # of charge cycles.

    I suggest reading through this http://www.apple.com/batteries/notebooks.html\

    It'll give you lots of great info on the battery in your new MacBook Pro. Happy reading!
