My only concern about the battery is that I usually use my laptops plugged in at work or at home. I do use them on the go sometimes but most of the time it is my computer on my desk at work. I talked to an "expert" at the Apple store and asked about how to deal with the lifespan of a battery if I can't remove it during the week when it is plugged in 100% of the time. He quickly pointed me to the Apple battery care website and walked away. I asked another person and they said to always use just the battery and when it gets low plug it in and charge it. Once it is charged unplug it and run off the battery until it gets low again. Rinse and repeat. While this may work it seems as though I would quickly use up my 1000 charges for the life of the battery. Now with a conventional battery I may only use it on the weekends which means it could end up lasting longer.

Has anybody used their built in battery in this manner and how did you deal with it for desktop work?
