    The MacBook Air comes with a 45W MagSafe power adapter and the 13-Inch MacBook from 2006-2009 and the 13-Inch MacBook Pro use the 60W power adapter. If the 2012 MacBook Pro is the model without the Retina display (With the CD/DVD drive) then the 60W would work on both. If you were to use a 45W MagSafe power adapter on the MacBook Pro, then it can cause problems with the battery and main logic board which are hard and not cheap to fix. The 60W MagSafe power adapter should work fine on the MacBook Air as well as the MacBook Pro.
