    TIP:

    if you want to preserve the number of batt cycles in your MBPs/MBAs

    Keep it plugged in whenever possible.. I've had a 2-year old MBP (used 24/7 as a desktop replacement - I work at home/anywhere) - which only had 22 cycles when I sold it.

    Just make sure to calibrate the battery once every quarter.

    ^Resale Value!

    The Apple website says that MBA/MBPs with built-in batteries are already calibrated & don't need to go thru the calibration process. I guess it doesn't hurt to do it anyway as mentioned by @cybersniper.

    sir cybersniper, when you say you keep your mac plugged in, does it mean it stays plugged even if it's fully charged already? i have this MBA for only a year and already have 297 cycles. your tip might work for me in preserving this mac's number of batt cycles. :)

    I think that is what he means. I have always kept mine plugged in since I use mine in the office for 9 hours every day. Ive done it with my very first mac years ago and i am still doing it with my current mac.
