    Anyone come across this? I don't recall my 85W MBP adapter getting this hot.

    Or is this a non-issue? I'd imagine less Wattage pulled through would produce less heat. :confused:

    I don't know about current gen MBAirs, but my MBAir Rev B brick was fairly hot ... quite hot. All bricks that are attached to all of my Apple products seem to be fairly warm.

    They all get really hot when the Macbook is charging or running under load.

    My TV, PS3, Monitor, Mac, Organs, and Fridge all run hot. Are they worthy of a thread?

    Go for it. Make a "who has a samsung display" thread while you're at it.

    Any electrical engineers here care to explain this?

    As I said up top, my 85W brick never got hot.. Warm sure, but nothing to this degree.
