    Hey guys..

    Whenever my new MBA is plugged in, I feel continuous static vibrations. It seems to be gone when i touch the mac with both hads (i guess i complete the circuit?)

    can this be damaging to me or the mac and how can i fix it? im using the original cabling. I live in Europe so i had to find a extension plug for the charger

    Are you using the 3-pronged plug? It may just need to be grounded.
