    Absolutely fine - don't know what all the other reviews are talking about!

    As far as I can tell, this is exactly the same power adapter as the one you receive in the box when you buy a MacBook Pro. I asked at the store for them to compare them for me and they confirmed that they are the same.

    I'm not sure why all of the negative reviews, I can only imagine that the reviewers bought the chargers for their laptops with the wrong wattage.

    The adapter comes with a year guarantee also.

    I'll report back in a couple of months with an updated review.

    Great!

    Bought the new 2011 13 inch MacBook Pro a few months ago and wondered how much it would cost to replace the charger, £50... Not a bad price for such a high quality piece of kit.

    Pro's
    -It's MagSafe, one of the best types of chargers I've come across.
    -The transformer doesn't get nearly as hot as my old Dell or Acer laptops.
    -Charges REALLY quickly, within an hour it's full and will last a good 5 or 6 hours.
    -Transformer has a built-in cable tidy, which really made me smile when I got it out of the box.

    Cons
    -The laptop connector does get quite warm but I imagine this is because the laptop and charger are both metal.
    -The cable tends to hold it's shape witch is no big deal but if i'm unwrapping it in a hurry it can be irritating.
    -It blew a fuse in the first week but I'm told there was a power surge in my street.

    Overall well worth the money, especially so if you are replacing the old T style connector as I hear that style was awful.

    I dont see what the problem is.

    I've had my MacBook Pro for over 6 months now. The charger has been completely fine. No problems at all. All the other reviews seem to say different but remember, its only people who have had problems who are complaining. There are thousands of working ones out there. They've just got the unlucky ones.

    I always leave mine plugged in and switched on (dont blame me for global warming) and mine hasn't overheated once. Saying that, everytime i've touched it, its not even been close to warm.

    So i'd highly recommend this charger. Most probably the best one on the market by far.

    Don't believe the (lack of) hype!

    I don't know what the other reviewers are on about?

    Bought this as a replacement for my old T-shaped magsafe.

    I'm using an old style 13" white macbook, running Leopard with the most recent firmware upgrade.

    I've had absolutely no issue with the charger, and the metal connector does not get hot as many people have been saying!

    As far as I'm concerned, it does exactly what it says on the tin.

    60w Magsafe for White MacBook runnigng Snow Leopard

    Was a bit worried after reading the reviews but went ahead and brought one anyway. Have had no problems. No firmware updated needed, just a happy owner with a MacBook that now has power.

    It just works

    I replaced my t style old power cable with this after squashing the old one in a door...read the reviews and felt worried as so many comments said it doesn't work. Why was I worried? Opened the box, plugged it in, charged the laptop. Thanks Apple- it is expensive but if I used a PC I would have spent this much just on virus protection this year...

    Not as bad as they say.

    I bought this new charger after having accidentally broken my old T-shaped charger with worry in my mind based on the "overheating" reviews found here.

    I can safely say that those reviews are scaremongering. The charger works without an issue, the MagSafe head does NOT overheat or burn you if it's touched. Cable management is far superior to the T-shaped MagSafe, plus you get a year warranty and peace of mind that the charger won't set fire to your house like some knock-off no-brand MagSafe's.

    Yet more innovation from Apple

    Apple have done it again! The "L" shaped adaptor heads mean that you can have the wires running away from you rather than out from the side.

    They also look much better than the "T" shaped adaptor heads due to the aluminium finish.

    Would very much recommend if you need a new charger!
