    Hi,

    So I've seen a few images on the web ( youtube ) of the new Macbook Pro. On the videos it appears that the Magsafe is similar to the Macbook Air connector( rounded, smaller ), instead of the traditional rectangular/square design.

    Is this true, does anybody have close ups of this please? I know it's nothing major but I was just wondering.

    Thank You

    yea its magnetism is much stronger, and it is also more space efficient for users. Some cases/dock manufactures might not be happy with this design tho.

    It was easier to plug-in and unplug the old magsafe connector. I personally didn't have any problems with the old magsafe so it's a step down for me.
