    Hi,

    I am finally going to buy my new 13'' MBP (I say finally because de core2duo vs i5 controversy but I need a new computer as my current vaio is almost dead). I've got two questions about the power adapter:

    I see two different 60W models in the web (this and this). Which one is the newer one? Which one should I get?

    Also, are the 60W and 85W versions different (weight and/or size)? I understand both will work with the 13'' but if the 60W is lighter/smaller I'll go for that one. If they are exactly the same I might go for the 85W just in case I change to 15'' in the long future...

    Regards

    The plug on the new MBP 13" looks like the one in the second link. I remember reading that the new i5/i7 MBP use the 85w MagSafe chargers. I'm not sure about the 13".

    Thanks, I'll buy the second one.

    Apple webpage says the 60W also works for the 13'' model. In any case, anybody knows if the 60W and 85W chargers are different in weight / size?

    Regards,

    85W is a bit bigger and heavier.
