I tired searching but could not find just what I was looking for.....

I just purchased a 13 inch macbook pro and was wondering when I first turn it on, do I plug it in and let it charge or should I let the battery go down to almost dead and then charge it

Your New Notebook
Be sure to fully charge your portable when you plug it in for the first time, and then run Software Update to ensure you have the latest software. Apple periodically releases updates that may improve battery performance.

also page 23 of the manual that came with the MBP http://comp.ieu.edu.tr/bimeko/web/MacBook.pdf
Thanks man for that info. I thought it be the same as other laptops and always charge the battery full first time use.

Yay for starting this topic lol I was also wondering whats the best way to start off with a brand new MBP.

Cheers
