    So, I just got my new rMBP (2.6/512) and I was wondering if you guys might know the best way to care for the battery... I usually keep my laptops plugged in whenever I'm home. Is that a bad idea? Just wondering if there are any concrete rules I should be living by.

    Run on battery whenever you need to and plug it in whenever you can. You can plug or unplug at any time, regardless of the charged percentage. Just make sure you don't run on AC power all the time, as your battery needs to be used regularly to stay healthy. This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:
