As of right now I am on day 6 of owning my new macbook pro. First thing I did when I bought it was charge the battery fully and let it drain all the way down until it went to standby than charged fully backup. I go to school and stay there pretty much the whole day. Today was the first day of it. When I got home it still had 2 hours left of life. So I let it run down and am now charging it fully again. I do not want to fatigue the battery but I doubt I will. I just want to know is there a good way to charge and keep the battery at it's max quality. "the original battery in my powerbook g4 lasted 5 1/2 years and still held a 30 min charge at the end." I just want to get the best life short term and long. Also I did a search for battery life and nothing came up that pertained to my question.
