    Do whatever you want

    Thats the bottom line, it won't make a difference either way. Open, power, enjoy. Think about the battery when it runs out.:D

    do what ever but just make sure you calibrate the battery for its first cycle.

    I calibrated mine on the first cycle.

    Charged it to Green after I opened the box. Let it sit on the charger at full green for two hours. Then worked on it with only the battery till the battery was exhausted and the Macbook went to sleep on its own.

    Waited about 7 hours (only have to wait at least 5), then charged it to full green again.

    Good luck with your new MB!
