    I remember reading a bunch of things about what to do with your battery right when you get your computer, yet I cannot find them now. I will be receiving a MBP next week, and I want to get the most out of my battery. So what should I do to ensure the greatest amount of battery time? So do I drain it all the way and then charge or something? Please help!

    It's called calibrating, and you only need to do it once. Istructions on this can be found on page 24 of your MBP User's Guide or here.
