Why did they go back to the old design with the cord sticking straight out from the side? Now when I use its on my lap, I keep disconnecting the laptop power with my knee, because it protrudes out too far. Plus it was nice to channel the cord away from you not out to the side of you. Not a huge deal i guess, but I was very happy with the last generation of MagSafe and this is a step backward, imo. The adaptor and old MagSafe does kind fix the channeling it away from you issue, but it still sticks out. Oh well, love the laptop, just wish they would have left the charger alone it was great the way it was.
