I have oredered myself a new iBook. My first mac ever, hurray!!! :cool:
Now, know from other laptops that there is a ceratin amount of charging cycles a battery can handle...
Is it therefore wise to take the battery out as I will be running the laptop mostly on the mains?

It is not going to make any great difference if you take the battery out or not.
I would just say to leave it in.__________________________________________________

The number of cycles isn't going to vary when the battery is in and the laptop is plugged into the wall. At that point, the battery shouldn't be charging anymore. Assuming that the device is designed this way (I can't see ANY reason why it wouldn't be...), it's not going to affect the number of cycles.
