I going to pick up a macbook for a relative over lunch this week. I want to show them the basics there but will the battery be charged in a new machine or will it need a charge?

It will come with *some* charge so you can use it straight out of the box but for best results you should calibrate the battery, as described in this document (read the second half).

My MacBook (just bought it), didn't come with that manual. Just a manual that says "everything mac" on the cover. Different contents than what's in that PDF you showed me.
Then you didn't get the full package, that manual should come with every new macbook. It did with mine anyways

Perhaps they don't include it anymore or maybe it's because I bought it with the education discount though I can't imagine that would affect anything. I'll have look into it.

The new Macs don't have the full manual, IIRC. It's in PDF inside of the install, somewhare.

I know - my sis's Yonah MBP has got a nice comprehensive manual, but my SR doesn't. Just a "everything Mac" booklet, and an "everything else" sleeve with the DVDs and some other stuff.
