    I'm sitting here with a brand new 15"/2.53GHz MBP, that (despite rumoured updates) I have decided to keep (probably). :D

    So, in order to enhance durability and overall lifespan of the hardware (battery, monitor, processor, etc.) are there any tricks out there? First start-up? Run warm? Leave on/off?

    Whatchu think?

    Just enjoy it ;)

    And make sure you have a backup strategy
    I prefer to use both Time Machine and Carbon Copy Cloner

    Whatever you choose... have a backup strategy
    Data storage is always cheaper than data recovery

    Breaking in a new laptop is a delicate process that must be done carefully to maximize the life of the laptop. Here is a detailed step-by-step procedure:

    1. Start using as normal and enjoy.

    If these steps are not followed exactly in this order, the user experience may suffer.

    Calibrate your battery. Make all your settings how you want them. Have fun. :apple:

    Keep it under 55 for the first 500 hrs of use. ;)

    Oh, all the funniez. :D

    Doesn't even the trick of completely draining the battery before (re)charging apply?
