    I have started using my MBA as a main computer almost every day around 4-5 hours...

    not sure keeping it on AC all the time is the best thing for the battery life...

    or charging it to full....depleting it...charging again ?

    or keeping it on AC all times ( when possible ) ...and calibrate every 2 months

    please advise...

    thanks!

    leave it charged, and empty it at least once a month to keep the cells active. calibrate every two months is a good idea too

    AC when using it, but MAKE SURE TO UNPLUG IT WHEN NOT IN USE. holding the battery at 100% when not in use will kill it in weeks. Calibrate it once a month...you should go through 4-5 cycles in a month *or up to like 10 for an upper limit.
