    I have a Black 2008 Macbook while the GF has a White 2010 Macbook. I have the 'old' design (all white cable) where hers in the metalish one. Can I use hers to charge my Macbook without issues? Mine is current fraying where it plugs in and I fear it may eventually die or start to spark (it's just a loose nub).

    I noticed the ones on eBay show different wattage and such. That won't matter? (Im buying a replacement, and like the design of the 2010 more since it won't get bent like the current one I have does).

    As long as you don't get the 45-watt, you will be fine, as those are not powerful enough to charge your computer as designed. Yours came with a 60W, but the 85W will work fine as well.

    Gotcha. Apple wants $80 for it, so I'll just hit eBay.

    Thanks all for the help!

    Get a 60 watt magsafe charger. Macbooks never used a 45 watt charger.
