    You should buy the 60W Apple Adapter. The MagSafe connector is not licensed for third-party construction, so if you buy one you're not getting the real (read: safe) thing.

    MacBooks come with 60W MagSafe but 85W will work too

    So Apple subcontacts magsafe for the supplies? But then (obviously) does not approve license of thier product under the magsafe name?
