    Hi
    I still have some chargers from my MBA 2010, but they used a l-shaped, instead of the current t-shaped. Will my old ones work on my 2012 or do I need to buy a new charger for the new models?

    Cheers

    You'll need a $10 adapter that Apple sells to use the L-chargers.

    The problem is that the 2012 models use a different connector called Magsafe 2 which is smaller, designed either for the retina models, or just to piss us off. The good news, as said above, is that the adapter will let you use your old power bricks for much less money than buying new ones.

    The link doesn't work for me, but it looks like that's the right adapter from the text in the link.
