I just received my IdeaPad Y550 and as excited as I am to start using it I want to make sure I do things right. When I first got my T41 many years ago it had instructions regarding first use including a prepatory battery charge* (something like 6-8 hours, I think). Expecting the same sort of deal, I checked the User Guide and did a quick Google search but can't find any mention of it. Does it require a prepatory charge before use? And if so, how long?
*I define a prepatory battery charge as plugging the AC into the wall and leaving the unit off for the duration of the chrage.

Thanks for the reply.
6-8 hours does sound about right. I asked around today and a friend of mine told me 12 hours, and that I should run the battery right down the first few times before recharging. 12 hours seems a bit excessive but the rest makes sense.
I guess I'll just leave it plugged in over night and take from there.
