    Is there a way to get around this? Surely the AC draws enough power to run the computer at full speed

    My father's mbp has a bad batt and ideally, would just rather have it out but also do not want the performance hit

    Your post doesn't really make much sense with the way you worded it. But I think you said something along the lines of "can I run my MBP without the battery". To be honest, I don't know the answer, but I think you should probably leave it in, especially if it's not supposed to be removed by the user. If you meant something different, try to reword it. Thanks :)

    Which versions of mb does this effect?

    I never noticed it when I ran without the battery.
