    I am trying to make the battery last as long as I can. How are you suppose to charge it? Let it run to about 10% then charge or try and keep it plugged in when you can?

    my personal routine is to keep it plugged in and every three days run it down to about 35-45% then plug it back in. that was when i was using it as a desktop replacement but no i have a MP. so it's being used in the living room/bedroom but im still trying to follow that same schedule as much as possible. and of course calibration is very very important.

    100%?

    I went through 1 charge cycle and I was at 97%. I calibrated my battery, and followed the instructions Apple gave.
