    This is my first Mac so is there anything that I should or should not do? Do I need to calibrate the battery right away. How?

    Thanks for helping this noob! :eek:

    Congrats on the purchase.

    I would use the battery on it's first charge, through all the registration BS, etc, run software updates, load your data, etc. When it's down to 5% plug it in. This simple step will reap a longer battery life/cycles for a long time. I squeeze about 4:05 out of my macbook on a single charge.

    Enjoy and good luck! :)

    My wife just called to say that it has been delivered! It will be a long 3 hours until work is over. Thanks to all for the comments and suggestions. I sure hope I don't have any of the keyboard or display issues I've read about here.
