    Im not sure if this is to worry or anything, just curious. The macbook works amazingly and handles everything i try to do with it perfectly fine, only when i plug the magsafe adaptor in, the whole thing becomes, like, electrified, you know? and its no wonder, since alluminium conducts electricity, but its hard on me to think that apple would produce something as carelessly thought.
    is this norrrmaaalll??

    It is actually increasingly common in laptops for you to feel the elictrical field traveling over them. The Apple's do have a little current bleed off, but it is nothing to be worried about. I have measured it to be at around 3-10 volts. This is normal operational parameters.

    Now the Dell Inspiron 9400's on the other hand.... They came originally with ungrounded adapters and were giving off upwards of 90 volts!!

    Not normal... even though Dell says it is

    I haven't noticed this phenomenon at all. Are you sure it's normal?
