Hi guys!
i've just bought a new macbook pro. the new macbook pro has its battery built-in. so if the battery already is 100% full should I pull out the magsafe? which powersource mac uses when the battery has reached 100%? is it ok to leave it plugged in or better to plug it out?
i'm afraid that the battery could be overcharged.
thx guys!

It’s perfectly acceptable to leave your computer plugged in when it has a full charge; it will simply draw power from the outlet until you unplug it. Just be sure to let it run from the battery when it is suitable (or at least once a month).

For more information on keeping your battery in good shape, check out Apple’s recommendations. There are also quite a few threads floating around here, as mbohn said.
