    I just began looking into getting rid of my 6 yr old pc for a new(er) MBP. If i were to buy a mbp, it would be plugged in 95% of the time it is being used. That being said, does the battery's life still depreciate as if it were being charged and drained on a regular basis?

    Also, I'm not looking to drop $2500 for a new mb, but i want to have a good video card for the small amount of gaming that i do. any suggestions on a model that wont break the bank?

    I'm no expert, but I believe it does. It's always good to unplug it from a power source every once in a while and let it drain the battery down, then hook it up and let it charge.

    If you're wanting a cheaper, but decent notebook, the Macbook might be a good decision. The new Macbook has a better graphics card to allow you to play the occasional game and it starts at $1,299.
