Anyone know the outcome of that rumor?
The new magsafes are the same design as those that ship with the Macbook Air.
Theres a picture here:
about 2/3 the way down the page.
IMHO, the angled plug is a much better design than the old one. Sits nice and flush.
Any chance these will come in an 85w version as well?
Seems like a reasonable thing to expect in the near future.
i think its great. Now careless people can pull the plug off using the cord and not have to worry about it breaking the insulation.
apple should have done this as soon as the magsafe problems began.
Im going to get my magsafe replaced tomorrow. It has a short right at the connection point, insulation is not broken but i think its from winding it up on the fold out "wrap?" points on the brick. The new design was obviously because of this problem i think. What do you think the chances of getting a new design is? probably not but it would be nice.
It's on their store as well.
You almost certainly won't get one with the new design, but it doesn't hurt to ask. For whatever reason, sometimes Apple Stores don't want to replace power adapters with visible cable damages, though they should. If you run in to trouble, suggest that your Apple Store representative view http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1713 (there's some information that only Apple can see at that web page, too).
This new shape is much better. It might unplug more easily when someone takes his feet in the cable or so.
That would be a function of the magnet, not of the connector. I don't have any issue with the original connector.
There isnt any visible damage to the wire. Anyways I called the apple store they are swapping it with the new design.
so were u successful in getting one?
I think it matches Apple's silver line of computers. I'm surprised why don't supply this Magsafe with macbook pros.
The new MBPs have the new MagSafe right...?
There is no new MBP yet.
Yeah... But they could still ship the new MagSafe with them... =)
No, the new one is 60w, while the MBPs use 85w.
Hoping for a 85w version of the new design soon, though.
The 13" MBP uses the 60W unit. Only the 15 and 17" ship with the 85W chargers. On Apple's store site they list the new 60W with angled connector as compatible with 13" MacBook and 13" MacBook Pro.
Actually not only. If the cable is moved to the side, the lever arm effect is more important, which makes it more secure.
