    Hi I'm an ex-pc user and I'm wondering:
    I can't take the battery out of the back when it's done charging, like most of the pc laptops.

    So when I leave my MB on the powercord when it's 100% charged, will it overcharge the battery or not?

    It will not overcharge the battery, as current battery technology, or at least the one Apple employs, is smart enough to not let that happen.
