run the machine on mains power, but it is a good idea to run on battery power from time to time - particularly when the computer is new. Run the battery right down and recharge it. Do that a couple of times.

I invariably run my laptop on the mains lead - it saves me having to think about the available power, particularly when I'm working live on a server.
