Read the manual. Sounds obvious, but the manual will definitely tell you how long the battery needs to be charged before first-use. Not all laptop batteries are the same; some need charging up for a full 12 hours and then fully discharged or they'll develop a "dirty charge", but most of the laptops I've seen these days have a type of battery (I forget what it's called) that doesn't have that problem, so you can use the laptop straight out of the box.
But do check the manual.
