    Connected or disconnected?
    Hello everyone! I just purchased a MacBook about a week ago and I have one little question. What is better for the battery? Keep the charger connected while its available or always run it on battery except when charging? I hope you can help me, thanks!

    I leave mine plugged in most of the time, but use battery about 2-4 hours a day when I'm away from my work area and take my Macbook along.

    I think a judicious use of the battery (unplugged) is good for its health.

    You should also calibrate the battery about once a month. Read about that here:
