Will MagSafe 2 damage my screen/main components of my MacBook Pro 13" (2013)?

    I accidentally brushed my MagSafe 2 over my screen and directly to the left of my keyboard. I felt a little resistance when I put it there on accident so I immediately picked it up. It was there for a very short time, but I was just wondering if this could have damaged the main components or the screen. I just want to be sure :)

    I doubt having a magnet near a laptop screen for a few seconds can cause any sort of lasting damage. In the old days, having a magnet near a crt screen could produce some interesting light shows and sometimes produced lasting distortion. LCD and LED screens aren't vulnerable to this sort of damage.

    Your Macbook is held shut with very strong magnets around the screen.

    It'll be fine.

    Not that a magnet would do anything in the first place, but the magnet is not in the MagSafe adapter. The magnet is in the MagSafe port in the Mac.
