    Is there any harm to a laptop if a battery is removed and AC Power is used exclusively or is it just as productive to leave the battery installed? The laptop battery would be charged on a monthly basis.

    no harm - only issue will be if you lose power , you will lose anything you are working on

    and if you keep the battery charged each month - then you can always pop it in to use on battery - after another recharge
    dont expect the battery to hold charge for a month

    Thank you, just as I thought or maybe even read somewhere? I believe a LT battery is good for about 150-200 recharges and this might decrease that. I just gave away a dual core AMD and subbed a dual core Intel which appears to have much better battery life but either of them was rarely used as a laptop and was in a fixed position for most of the time.
