Probably the first accurate article from the NYT in years:
I've had it happen a few times and was glad it did. The cable got snagged behind something. Luckily it disconnected so I didn't damage the cable.
I'd be more worried about the heat not being able to get out the back of the laptop when using it on your bed (sheets/pillow folding around the laptop blocking the air in-/outlets). Be careful with that as well as putting it on other soft items.If i'm using it on my lap on the couch or while sitting in bed the magsafe sometimes disconnects, but other than that I've had no issues either.
To give you an idea: with the previous L-shaped connector you could lift up your notebook a couple of centimetres from the table and it didn't disconnect at all. The current design does not allow for this as it disconnects immediately.It maybe me but my MagSafe is hard to remove. It's my first Mac so I don't know.

I still think my MagSafe requires more force to remove than it should. It's not a simple light pull and it disconnects. I have to pull it apart. If someone trips on the cable I fear the Air would still be connected to the cable. Maybe I should go to bestbuy and try their MagSafes?
It's supposed to disconnect when you put force on it, that was the entire reason that they introduced Magsafe in the first place 6 years ago.
Not (just) because magnets are cool.
I think what you folks are not realizing is on the new charger you can slightly move it up or down and it comes off very easily. In the case of when you have it on your lap and anything touches it, it comes off.
I would suggest the next time you're itching to reply, that you actually understand the complaint first.
