    Hi,

    I have a late 2012 13" MacBook Pro. What colour is the part of the adaptor where the three pinned plug slides in. Is it grey or white.

    The reason I ask is that I also have an old 2006 White MacBook that I had to buy a replacement adaptor for. I bought the adaptor from Amazon, it claimed that it was a genuine apple part.

    I now can't remember which one is the one I got with my 2012 MacBook.

    At the point where the plug attaches one is white, the other is inset with grey plastic.

    I am in the Uk

    Thanks in advance

    If it works fine, there are no reasons for concern

    I am giving away my old MacBook and I want to keep the original charger for my newer MacBook Pro

    FWIW, that section of my 2012 rMBP's 85W US adapter is a very light gray color.

    Thanks for that. I forgot to ask if the UK three pinned plug attachment also has a grey insert or is it all white?

    Any UK MacBook Pro (non-retina) owners out there who can help? Does your 3-pinned plug attachment have a grey inset or is it all white?

    I have the British plug as well and the contact points are a silver metallic gray.

    Do you mean the plastic where the two pins connect to the main power block

    Here is a picture of the two plugs, if there is anyone from the uk could tell me which is the original from mid 2012 13" non-retina MacBook Pro. The one of the left much thinner.

    On both my 60W and 85W Late 2013 adaptors they use the one with the grey insert.
