Any advice on 'conditioning' a new lap top battery please?

I was told that with a new battery you should fully charge and then fully discharge a couple of times.

Best way probably to discharge is to play a DVD until the battery runs down.

and thereafter don't use it with batteries in AND using mains power at same time. I fully charge battery then remove it when I'm using laptop at home. Otherwise it is constantly being "trickle charged" which is good way to ensure it has a short life!
