    My laptop is always plugged into the mains. Is it best (for the battery) to keep the battery out?

    I've always left mine in. Handy if the power goes out and easy to unplug and carry the machine around if need be. I'm not convinced the gain in battery life is worth removing it every time I use it at a desk.
