Hi guys and gals, I spend about 8-10 hours a day studying and I usually have my computer with me for reference and looking at powerpoints etc. One of my buddies... has a toshiba and he takes his battery out when we study together. I was wonderin if that's a good idea with macbooks? It might help with heat issues and maybe battery conservation. Anyone have any ideas? I did a search through the thread but couldn't find anything. Thanks so much.
