I just picked up my 11" i7/8g/500 MBA and love it. Definitely handles everything I throw at it. I've been babying it and I want to get into better habits of battery care. My concern is that since I picked up the i7, and do game casually (on a good week when my work schedule allows it I'll game 1-2 hours a day 4 days out of the 7 day week), how can I maintain its condition. Concerns: -when gaming, working on photoshop or anything a bit more strenuous, should I work unplugged or keep it plugged in? Such as keeping it plugged into my ACD all day? I've heard both sides of this. One side is saying keeping it plugged in doesn't harm it since it stops charging at 97%-100% and works off the power source. The other says unplugging and actually using charge cycles is healthy versus 'rationing' them even when at home. Kind of the whole "if you don't use it, you lose it" saying. Before this computer, I started getting into calibrating my MBP battery every month. Any tips, advice and input is greatly appreciated!
