    I very much doubt it, you don't have to calibrate any other apple laptop battery, why start now??... :confused:

    Haha someone doesn't read their manuals. You have to calibrate EVERY Apple laptop battery, first when you get it, and then every month after that to ensure long health.

    Heres the article:

    However... the new 17" Unibody Macbook Pro manual doesn't mention the above article like every other Apple manual does, and with the new battery technology Apple is using the general consensus is that you dont need to calibrate it.
