    Loving my new rMBP so far.

    At work I have my Magsafe 2 power supply on my desk sitting next to the computer (with extender cord running to surge protector below). I just accidentally touched the power supply -- WOW. Any contact more than a few seconds would probably result in a serious burn. Has anybody else experienced this? I guess I don't typically have it so close to me, but still very surprised at the temperature.

    They do run hot, but burns? If it really is hot enough to burn you I'd take it in and get it checked.

    I noticed the same thing with each of the 2 different rMBPs I had; not sure what the deal is but definitely much hotter than any of the MBP power supplies I had every had up to that point.

    It's quite normal.

    I'm sure it'd be uncomfortable, but I doubt it'd cause a serious burn. If it's actually getting hot enough to burn you, then take it in. They'll exchange the A/C adapter at the store if something is wrong with it.
