    When my MBA comes next week. How should I train the battery when open it?

    Drain it first? Plug it in to get full charge? Whats the best thing to first train it?

    I just got my 11.6 1.6GHz, 128Gb SSD, 4G MBA on Friday. The battery was at 85% out of the box and was estimating only 2 hours of use remaining. I drained the battery and let it sit unplugged overnight. I am charging it today. With every new macbook I have ever owned the batter life estimation was off until it went through a full charge cycle.

    Good thread! I didn't do anything, just hooked it up to the adapter. Going to drain it tonight! :)
