    New 17" arrived today.

    Looking to care for the battery from day one - should I start her up and drain before beginning the callibration process, or charge before starting up?

    I've read this (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1490) but it doesn't really highlight if I should drain the battery first or not.

    Thanks!

    First charge, preferably leave it in for 2 hours after reaching 100%, then drain. That's how I do it.
