    Hello

    I know that Macs usually have great battery life, I got the Late rMBP which arrived november 1 and now I have already gotten to 47 cycles which averages 1.5 a day because i'm playin games at full brightness which take the battery down twice a day or something so any recommendations of what I should do? Is it better if i keep it plugged in always when playing, will this not make me lose cycles because I heard at 500 or something the battery goes down to like 80% or something.

    Run on battery whenever you need to and plug it in whenever you can. You can plug or unplug any time you need to, regardless of the charged percentage, and you never need to completely drain your battery. Just make sure you don't run on AC power exclusively, as your battery needs to be used regularly to stay healthy.
    The link below should answer most, if not all, of your battery/charging questions. If you haven't already done so, I highly recommend you take the time to read it.
