    Hi.

    I have the MBP 12 low end from April 2010. Today i noticed some blue lines on my MacSafe Power Adapter. Its bought in a Danish Apple Retail Store. I´ve tried to take a picture but my camera cant focus on it :( The lines looks like humans veins. Its become very warm when i´m charge my MBP. Should i return it or what?

    Hope you guys can help me?

    Thanks! :D

    On the brick itself? Have you tried to clean them off?
    I feel like this could be hazardous to your health.

    Probably just scratches? The charger scratches real easy and I have seen alot of Apple-chargers with colored scratches. Sure you havent kept it in a blue bag or on a blue floor or table?

    I wouldn't worry too much about it but take it to your dealer so they can check it out..

    All MacBook-chargers get very hot when charging, that is not a sign of a faulty product.

    No harm in taking it in to get it checked out.

    That's pretty scary! Your power supply brick has been Avatarized!:D
    Sure hope it is not contagious!:)
    Seriously, that is definitely not normal, so yes, you should take it in to the Apple Store and get it diagnosed. Better yet, get it replaced.:cool:
