    Hi. The 45 watt power adapter on my 12 inch powerbook is on it's last legs. I have access to a very cheap replacement but it's a 65 watt adapter that came with the 15 & 17 inch models. Is it safe to use this as a replacement?

    Should do.

    65W just means it's capable of sourcing more power if needed.

    Yes it's fine, in fact the one they sell as a spare is a 65W charger. You can use the 65W model with iBooks and PowerBooks that originally shipped with a 45W charger but not the other way around.
