    Hi,

    I just bought a new i7 15" MBP a couple days ago to upgrade my old 13" black MB. I noticed that the the magsafe connector that came with it had a different looking tip. I'm not sure if I like it. It seems awkward and I know the "correct" way to put it is the cord away from the USB/FW/etc ports - which requires another "extra" (=P) step rather than the old magsafe that seemed relatively simple since it was tiny and just jutted out from the tip.

    Anyway, a year ago, I had to buy a new power adapter since my dog bit MB magsafe. I know the MB had a lower wattage. But, my question is - is it okay for me to use my old MB charger (85watt) instead of the one that came with it? Would there be any problems? Changes in charge time, battery, etc? Just making sure.

    Thanks,
    Christian
