Hey all, while at home I always keep my iBook plugged in. It kind of act likes a 3rd desktop with Synergy running on my other 2 PCs.

My question is I also use my iBook alot on the go. I use it for school projects/work etc all the time. Will leaving my iBook plugged in all the time at home reduce my battery life?

Thanks.

I don't think so, but if you nearly always leave it plugged in, why not remove the battery just to be on the safe side?

Charge it up and then just remove it... it should retain it's charge, and if you ever leave it out for a long period of time, just charge it every few weeks or so...
