I've just received my new Macbook and I'm not sure whether I should charge it fully before using it for the first time, or should I use it until the battery is dead and then fully charge it? I have googled this, but I found different answers and not just a simple yes charge it, or no don't charge it.

I would plug it in and let it charged fully. Congrats! I'm getting another MBP 13 Thursday. My current MBP 13 will go to my niece. And everyone is happy =)

Thank you! I phoned Apple in the end to ask for advice and they also told me to charge it. Lucky niece you have!
