    I took the plunge and got a MBP 13 (5,5) in October. Its all going well except for the same problem that recurs.
    The problem is that when plugged in via magsafe i recieve a mild tingling throughout the shell. This first happened a week after I got it but I solved it by using the long lead instead of the smaller plug. But now even the longer lead which is supposed to remove the issue still gives me the same vibration/electric shock feeling. Its NOT minor, I feel it when its plugged in and it hurts! I get a headache when it does this :/

    Any help? I havnt found much useful help on this on the new models :eek:

    If your computer is giving you an electric shock, that's a bad sign. I'd have someone look at it.
