Windows 7: Plugging the pc all the time will broke it ?

If you want to maximize the usable life of your laptop battery, or most any Lithium Ion battery follow guidelines here:

How to Prolong Lithium-based Batteries - Battery University

What essesnbe stated about clipping the high end of the charge will help to maximize life. Battery management circuits/logic in devices have improved over the years but the capability he mentioned is not available in all devices. If it's not there then you can do the same manually but it's more of a pain.

I've got a laptop from 2005 and a handheld device from 2001 which are both still usable with the original batteries. They don't stay powered as long as they used to but I would estimate they still have well over half the capacity they originally had.

Lithium Ion is not like the old NiCd or NiMH rechargables. The only time you would ever need to discharge is when the "remaining charge" indicator is out of whack. Even then you don't want to discharge fully. If you can live without the accurate "remaining charge" indicator all the better, because each time you recalibrate it reduces remaining life a little more. They don't tolerate either low or high voltages very well.
