    So I finally recieved my macbook in the mail and am very excited about breaking it in! I am concerned as to whether or not i should leave it plugged int all of the time when it is left at my desk. I have heard various opinions about it but I am not sure if I am running down the battery by doing this.

    Should I let it cycle or leave it plugged in all of the time.

    P.S. I did calibrate it already.

    It has never been proven that leaving your Mac plugged in all the time does any kind of harm to the machine or battery. Its best to cycle the battery once or twice a month and your battery life should be fine.
