    charging the macbook
    I'm quite new to macbook, i just buy my macbook 2 days back. I want to know what is the best method to protect the macbook battery
    1) disconnected power cable just after fully charged
    2) continue plug the machine even though battery is fully charged (if I do this, is it overcharging the battery)

    please tell me, thanks.

    I've had my 13" MacBook pro for 2 years now, it's pretty much connected all the time and I've never noticed it becoming very hot. It's warmish but not hot

    It wont hurt to leave it plugged in. To help retain/extend the life of your battery, let it go down to the red level about once per month, and then do a full recharge.
    Mac is like a car, keep clean and up to date and it will give you many hours of good driving

    The new Mac Books have a pretty sophisticated battery and battery charging system. You can read about it at the link below. I think you will find some good information.

    The older Mac Books could also have their batteries re-calibrated. However the new ones come pre-calibrated therefore it's not necessary to do it to the new ones.

    The link below talks about the re-calibration.
