Hello I am a desktop guy and I hate laptops due to lack of durability and weaker performance but I decided to go with a laptop a month ago for portability. I read your guide on batteries but I am wondering, does that battery really die that fast because am not used to laptops. A month later the iStat shows a 46 cycles and my laptop is already at 98% of health. it would really suck to have a laptop with a bad battery because then it is like a moving desktop, because it needs the wire. I don't want to get there. I looked at battery prices and they are insanely high $120!! For something that starts to die after a month of usage, and a high price of $1200 or so(uMB). Now I got the idea that it is best to let the battery die down and then fully recharge it, but is it better if I keep my laptop fully charged and use it while it is connected to the power cord. Will I retain more battery lifetime like that?
