    Yes, MBP chargers work fine on MBs. The power output is the maximum so they simply output less power (less power is drawn by the attached device) when a MB is attached.

    I use my MBP charger all the time on my wife's MB, and it works just fine. As the previous poster said, the MBP has a larger capacity, and the MB won't draw more than it needs...

    I work at an electronics store and we have the MBP and the MB right next to each other and someone swiped the MB power adapter and the MBP has been working great on both the MBP and MB

    Yup; when my MB's charger dies, I'm getting an MBP one, in the hopes that its greater thickness will increase the time between when I buy it and when it short circuits.
