    Hello guys...

    I was wondering if it's wrong or bad to leave the computer plug in after the battery is charged...

    Thanks!!!

    There's nothing wrong about that.

    Just make sure that you recalibrate your battery once a month. Otherwise you are fine. That's what I do all the time anyways. I had this MBP for over three months now. I have only 10 cycles and 99 sometimes 100% health. How did I get 10 cycles? 6 times, I let it run on battery. The other four times occured when I traveled :p

    It should be fine - designed to run like that.

    But remember to use the battery until it's flat every now-and-then just to keep it in good shape. :)

    Charge it till its full. Unplug it. Run it till it shuts itself off due to lack of battery. Wait 5 hours or more. Plug it in again.

    Pretty simple really, but Apple doesn't really advertise the fact that we should calibrate the battery once a month.

    If the health was already crappy, no need to calibrate it! Only makes it worse!
