I just got a new MacBook Pro and was wondering is there anything I kneed to know about keeping the battery running at it's peak?
when do I charge, do I keep it plugged in, or do I wait until it drains then charge it...things like that.

What you should do to maintain the capacity of the battery is to, maybe twice a month, run the battery until the computer goes to sleep and then turn it back on until the battery has no juice left. Then recharge it fully. This maintains the battery's capacity and prolongs its health. Other than that try to have it plugged in where you can, only use the battery when needed.

This is what I have done every couple of months or so since i've had my MacBook. Seems to work well.
