"everyone with the new macbooks", is the magsafe power supply the same as the one withh the MBP's?
No. The connector is the same, but the adapter that ships with the Mac Book 60W power adapter. The Mac Book Pro ships with an 85W power adapter.joshwest said:"everyone with the new macbooks", is the magsafe power supply the same as the one withh the MBP's?
Or even more likely, it will simply not charge the battery while the machine is running, and charge it very slowly when its not. This is how the old PowerBook 1400/Duo/3400c/G3/iBook adapters worked. If you connected a low power Duo power supply to an iBook or PowerBook G3, it would simply maintain the same battery level while running - no charging.mrichmon said:But powering a MBP with a MB adapter is likely to burn out the adapter (or possibly start a fire).
