MacBooks Slow Down without Battery

Here's something I wouldn't have believed if it wasn't on Apple's website.

It seems like Apple's MacBooks and MacBook Pros slow down their CPUs if they don't detect their battery attached.

Well, a lot of people usually removes their laptop's battery when working for long periods at home or at the office, to minimize wear and tear.

But, if you own an Apple laptop, doing that will cost you... a lot. We're talking about a 30% slowdown in processing speed!
Apple's official explanation is that this is done to prevent the laptop from shutting down if the A/C power adapter is unable to provide enough power to keep the laptop working at full power.

Is Apple cheap enough to save a couple of dollars in their A/C adapters instead of making it work as it should?
