    I will be getting a MBP soon. It will be my first Mac. What are the best practices to follow with the MBP battery?

    Also, a simple search of the forums will bring up a number of threads with conflicting information.

    My recommendation is to discharge and recharge once per month
    Avoid unplugging and plugging constantly

    I would avoid leaving it plugged in constantly, or if you must leave it plugged in, discharge it to around 50% or lower at least once a week. My first battery dies because I left it plugged in too much, and because it was made by Sony.
