    I have the 11 in air, LOVE IT.

    with the battery, is it bad to plug it in every night just to top it off....?

    or am I better off just charging it when I need to?

    I thought I read somewhere that the battery is goof for a certain amount of cycles?

    thanks

    No.
    Use it on battery when you need to, charge when you can. Just don't leave it on AC power all the time.
    It should hold up to 80% capacity up to 1000 cycles.

    This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:

    You can leave it AC power all the time, except for a full calibration cycle once every month or so.

    It's absolutely not recommended. Read the FAQ.

    My adapter has always been plugged in, regardless if it needed recharging. What would happen?

    If you keep it plugged in all the time, you are without a doubt damaging the health of your battery. Read the FAQ GGJStudios posted.
