    so after my last debacle buying a macbook my new one arrived and works wonderfully and i have not complaints what so ever but i have a question maybe some seasoned members can answer.

    last night i noticed that when i plugged in my MBP the power brick got really hot is this common occurrence or should i have it replaced? it is the 60w version not the 85w one??

    If too hot, it switches itself off.

    Don't worry about it.

    This. Hot is too hot when the computer shuts itself down.

    13 inch = 60w power adapter, 15-17 =85w power adapter. Remember he is not talking about the Macbook overheating, he is talking about the power adapter.

    Yes. It will shutdown, when too hot, I had that happen twice. When cool enough, they will work again.

    It’s normal for them to get hot, especially if they’re not on a flat surface. If you’re worried about it, have it tested by a Genius free of charge.

    Power adapters get very hot, sometimes almost untouchable, until the computer is charged then they'll cool down.
