Thanks, for quick answer. I didn't know that they changed connector in the plastic macbook.

The one I got is aluminum. Actually thought it was plastic at first but put it to teeth and it has a metallic clang.

Looks WAY more durable than the old ones with a wire going perpendicular into the plug. Bet this will last much longer and looks better for sure!

my new 13" mbp has the same new adapter as you speak of. You can either plug the box directly in, or change to fitting so that it connects to a longer AC cord, which essentially doubles the distance that the cord reaches. Mine is plastic, although they make have used others in order to clear out inventory.

Can anyone get me the serial or model number? I would like to buy one. Any place sell it cheaper than from Apple?

I'm glad that the power ratings are the same. I currently have two powerbricks and wouldn't want to have to buy another new one to have one each at home and work.

I still haven't seen definite confirmation that the physical connectors are compatible, although I'd think they probably would be.

Yes the only difference is the look between the old and new adapter; functionality is the same.

So you can plug the new one into the old connector, and the old one into the new connector? I thought they looked a little different, but haven't looked closely.

I have the Macbook Pro 1,1, and I have two AC Chargers. Does anyone know if these chargers are compatible with the new MBP?

System Info says this about my charger:

AC Charger Information:

ID: 0x0100
Wattage (W): 85
Revision: 0x0000
Family: 0x00ba
Serial Number: 0x002cbd48
