    Never using battery power in a laptop


    I have a brand new laptop and I run it on mains power all the time (constantly plugged in) does this degrade the battery in any way as I have no way of taking the battery out because it is housed inside the machine.
    I have Googled this and have a number of different thoughts on the matter so any thoughts on what I should do ie occasionally use it on battery power?

    Am asking because it was quite expensive to buy this device - an Asus X721A Vivo notebook.

    :)
