I am at 30. I have had the laptop for exactly 2 months now. Is the cycle count too much? Do I need to take steps to keep it plugged in more? Or should I just keep using it the way I want to....after all it is just a frickin' laptop? FWIW I have never babied it, I never do any of my gadgets. It looks dirty as hell and has that 'used' look and kind of like it. I may have wiped it down maybe 2-3 times in 2 months.
