I thought this should be taken care of by the charging circuit in the
laptop: if I'm not mistaken, the charging circuit should put the
battery offline when it's fully charged?

My sister has an even older Dell (it must be at least 5 or 6 years)
which still lasts just under an hour on the *original* battery. In the
meantime, I've had at least 3 or 4 batteries in two different Compaqs
die on me. She never unplugged the battery in all these years; she
couldn't care less, really ...
