Hey guys, I'm looking to get the new MBP, because of the size, and obviously the OS. I had a 2008 15 inch MBP that died on me after i dropped it (duh). I'm on an XPS 1330 right now and i dislike it a lot, the battery life with the extended battery nets me around 3.5 hours at most. Anyways, enough gibberish: I've read the battery calibration and in the process: Upon receiving it, do I charge it until the battery is full without turning on the computer and using it? or does this now matter unless it is plugged in? Once the batter is fully charged, is it better to keep the charger on for another hour (from what I read trickle charging)? Once those steps are complete, correct me if I am wrong but, I am supposed to use it until it has very low battery and I shut it off or until it dies? Out of these two ways is one better than the other? Then from my understanding I should leave it be for about 5 hours, before I completely recharge it (using or not using it)? And those are the steps to the battery calibration? I've been searching around, but have not found the definite answer to: are people getting more battery time out of a unit with an SSD versus a traditional disk drive? I will be purchasing the computer from apple with the education discount, if I sign up for the ADC (99 dollars) will I be able to use that 25% stacked with the education discount? Also, upon reading the ADC option is it a yearly fee or one time fee? Could I got with the select membership (299 or 399 I think) and be able to apply that discount yearly if I upgrade that often? Anyways thanks to anyone who is able to give me insight in advanced! Any opinions or critiques are welcome and much appreciated, thanks!
