Should I keep the battery in when I'm connected to AC power?
You should always keep the battery in as the latest Intel Macs restrict their processors to 1ghz when a battery is not inserted. Contrary to popular belief, it also increases the lifespan of the batteries as the notebook's internal power management conditions the battery which is better than leaving it unconnected. It's also more convenient too.
OK, I know it's been posted by Dan before:
So... we should just leave the battery inside? Even if we know that we hardly going to bring the laptop out (use with battery)? So we just leave the battery in, and connect the AC adapter at all time, or only plug in the AC adapter to charge when the battery is almost empty, and unplug when it's fully charge?
leinad must do battery drain? Do we max out running all applications and movies to drain? I thought this battery is not memory sensitive. When I feel the underside of the mbp, only the left speaker area is hot. the batt area is warm to cool. I thought as long as no heat gets to the battery its life will not suffer.Yeah.. You can leave it plugged in while using too.. Just make sure you do a few drains and charge it once in a while...
You don't have to force drain the battery... In short, Lithium ion batteries do not have memory effects, but their ions are supposed to be constantly moving as much as possible... If they are stagnant for too long, the cells die too.leinad must do battery drain? Do we max out running all applications and movies to drain? I thought this battery is not memory sensitive.

I think its a good design of apple to put the battery there. centralised weight and away from the heat.
I use postball to prop up my mbp. now even cooler

When installing it'll be stuck on Searching for Macintosh HDD while it keeps searching, nothing seems to be happening.

Another problem is the preview on Macbook. Can't seem to use it. Click on it nothing happens. Can't seem to preview anything, including jpeg files.
