    ive been doing some long stints of crysis on my macbook 2.0 aluminium and i noticed that the power adapter was getting rather hot. i swapped it with the one from my white macbook and it didnt get nearly as hot. why would different power adapters be heating up different amounts? they are both 60w adapters.

    thats weird, mine doesn't heat up, from charing a completely empty battery, to having it just plugged in. Maybe you should get it checked out if its getting really hot, if its just "warm" then its probably fine, if its getting hot too touch then get a new one so it doesn't melt anything
