..and I've only had my MBP since April 25? I was shocked to see it has been that many. I basically live on my computer. It hasn't even been 2 months and I'm down to 94% of my original battery capacity. Screen shot: My friend suggested that I take the battery out and use it plugged in, in order to preserve it. I opted not to, because I like to take it from room to room when I need to. But if this is what I'm dealing with, I'll gladly keep it stationary for long periods of time. Do you suggest I remove the battery for a while?
