    Hi all,
    I'm a newbie to Mac world and did a detailed search to make the battery life prolonged. I read the Apple's guidelines as well as the Macrumors guide, but I have one more question---What if I keep my Macbook plug-in all the time and calibrating my battery one in a month??

    Even if you keep your MacBook plugged in all of the time, calibrating once a month should be fine.

    Just make sure when you do calibrate that you completely drain the battery. Instead of letting it drain slowly, personally I would recommend that you run it out during normal usage, then let it drain the rest after it automatically sleeps.
