Aloha everyone, I have an appointment at the local Apple Store later this afternoon, but I had a question for any 2011 MBP owners. How hot is the "brick" part of the charging cable supposed to get while charging the computer? I ask this because I noticed, today, that mine got so hot it would have been extremely uncomfortable to hold for more than a few seconds. I have an external HDD attached to my iMac and was accessing video files and Xcode projects from that HDD on my MBP while in another room. I was also downloading the latest version of Xcode from the developer website, so I decided to put my laptop on the charger, at least until the download completed. When I took my computer off the charger, I touched the brick and shocked at how hot it was. It seemed to be almost as hot as my laptop when I play Empire at War (I once saw it get up to 75C!) I don't think this is normal, so I made the appointment at my local Apple Store. Has anyone else experienced this behavior from their charging brick? I don't want to replace the entire computer - has anyone exchanged just the charging cable? I'll post again once I return from the Apple Store to let everyone know what happened.
