quick question.

I have a macbook pro 2.33 and my girlfriend has a macbook pro with a 2.4 processor.

Her charger itself is smaller (the block, mine's more a rectangle and hers is a square). curious as to if there's any harm to either of our computers if we use each other's chargers.

Just a quick question.

Me too I use a charger from a Macbook on my MBP, No bubbles no troubles.
I think mine is even a generic charger off ebay.
