    So let me get this straight, the new macbook pro's do not need to be calibrated when you first open them?

    So when do you calibrate? once a month?

    Also I'm trying to understand the instruction for calibrating later

    for step one can the computer be used while it is charging to full charge? I know step two and three mention that it can be used, I'm just not sure about step one.

    You don't calibrate them at all. The built-in batteries in the newer Mac unibody notebooks come pre-calibrated and do not require regular calibration like the removable batteries. The instructions you quoted were clearly for PowerBooks and earlier Mac notebooks. Read the link above for information about newer unibody notebooks.

    This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:
