Laptop Battery

Hey Cnet,
My laptop's battery is non removeable, and I never move my laptop.
Which strategy is better to keep the battery:
Having the laptop always plugged in?
Charge and recharge the battery?

We just set them on the desk and plug them in.

Just last year some laptops were cycled out. Some had been plugged in for over 5 years. Result? One unit had a battery rated about 86% of capacity and the other was over 95%. Makes you think those folk that pull out batteries etc. work far too hard.

Re: battery

Always keep the adapter plugged in the mains outlet and connected to the laptop.
