Windows 7: New Netbook

Windows 7 - Ultimate
New Netbook

Hello guys.

I've bought a new netbook. My Question is do I need to keep the Adapter Plugged in ? or can I remove it when the battery if fully charged?

Because I read somewhere that's better for the battery life to keep the adapter on all the time.

Sorry if this is not the right section!

If the battery is charged, you can remove the adapter. Once the battery gets low, it will start warning you and telling you to plug it in. Then you should plug it in.

To prolong the life of a computer battery, it should be almost drained on a frequent basis. If this is not done the battery "forgets" how much is a full charge and it will begin requiring a charge more and more frequently. I have known this for quite a while. However, it is confirmed,below

I wouldn't unplug it for the sake of unplugging it though. If you are using it on a desk where you can plug it in, do it. If you need to take it somewhere where you will be moving around or not near a plug, you can do that as well. As a general rules with my laptops, they stay plugged in as much as possible.
