DH and I are having a debate. He thinks we should keep our laptop plugged in 24/7, b/c if we let the battery run low, then recharge, the battery will eventually die for good and we'll have to buy a new one.
I think that by keeping the laptop plugged in 24/7, and moving it from coffee table to our laps, is causing the connection between the cord and the computer to deteriorate. We had this happen with our last laptop. The cord eventually became so loose within it's "socket" that it fell out if you moved the laptop the slightest. Eventually it quit charging the computer and the computer essentially died b/c we had no way to recharge. We even bought a new cord, but the connection inside the computer was just too loose and it didn't make a difference.
Our current laptop is 1.5 yrs old and I feel like we are going down the same path.
Anyone know what the right thing to do is? What is good "laptop hygiene?"
