    i just bought the 2.66 macbook pro just a little over two weeks ago and i noticed that the power adaptor gets really hot when its charging my laptop. i mean hot to the point that you can't hold it for less than 10 seconds cuz you'll burn your hand. i don't wanna end up burning the house and i'm concerned that i might have gotten a defective one.

    is this the norm?

    I have a mac mini 07 model with a power brick and mine gets just as hot I think its normal that or we both got defective power bricks haha ( I just try to keep it away from anything that can catch fire )
