    How much of a brick is the 2016 rMBP power brick?

    Is it at all smaller than the previous model's? How much?

    Does it make a difference in the daily carry?

    I have a 15" MacBook from 2009 and the new 2016 one. I think the new 87w(?) one is 10% larger or something

    It is also bigger than the retina Macbook power adapter.

    I had a 2014 13" rMBP and now have the new 13" Touchbar model and the brick to me is exactly the same shape, size and weight.

    Just held the new 87W adapter next to the original and official Apple replacement 85W adapters for my 2011 non-retina 17", and they seem exactly the same size.

    But the weight of the newer adapter is supposed to be .81 pounds, while the 2015 one is listed at .71.
