AC Adapter: PowerBook vs. MacBook Pro
Update, January 15 2008: I've heard about problems with the Magsafe connectors. Just to let you know, I haven't had a tick of trouble. Zero heating, zero fraying, nothing that would be a leading indicator of trouble to come. I take care to grasp the body of the connector, of course (no yanking on the wire), but it seems pretty durable.
Three adapters have arrived.
Stated capacity: 85W, up from 65W
Size: The new ones are about 10% taller and wider, maybe 5% thicker. In other words, barely larger.
Weight: Not perceptibly heavier.
This gives four adapters, the normal portion.
> 1 for backpack
> 1 for work desk
> 1 for home, downstairs
> 1 for home, upstairs.
