    Hi there,

    I am planning to get a new MacBook Pro 13" model. I have some questions to ask regarding long hours of usage.

    Right now, with my current PC laptop, I am able to remove the battery to run it on AC mode so I can leave it on for hours without having to charge the battery.

    As with the new MBP, the battery are in-built and if I wanna run it on AC mode, it will inevitably charge the battery.

    I know the old MacBook Pro allows you to pluck out the battery so you can run it on AC mode.

    Any solutions for this? Please advise.

    it stops sending charge and current to the battery after it reaches a certain percent (95% ~ 100%)

    so it wont be a problem really.
    asides from that running any systems, well Macs atleast...underclock the cpu when running on power adapter alone without a battery present

    Yeah I do realize this phenomenon even in the older macbook.

    So can I safely say that if I plug in the AC adaptor, the charging with stop once the battery is full and then the laptop will switch to AC mode?

    Yes, in the same way every other laptop would. :)
