i have a 60gb macbook. its partitioned into two. 30gb each. the other half is mac os and is windows xp. now i only have 12gb on my mac and 10 on my windows. now if i keep on updating my mac, will my mac HD fill?
how long do you think? about two years now the updates will conquer 5gb or something??
oh another thing. i plug my power supply while the battery is also plugged in. do i need to remove the battery to avoid overcharging it?
While it is safe and recommended to leave the battery in, do you think it could extend the batteries life by storing it in a refrigerator at 40% charge while have the computer plugged in?
I'm referencing the first graph with temperature scale.
My thought process was - no point in having the battery in if it's not going to be used while have the computer plugged into an outlet for long periods of time (~5 days). If it's not going to be running, I could store it in a more "hospitable" environment.
Valid points. I came across that website in another post and wondered if it would be ideal. Thanks.
Thanks, cwa107. You've, at least partly, explained why my five yr old thinkpad's battery lasts about a half hour!
