    MagSafe power adapter
    Hi guys. I just got a MacBook Air 13"from my friend. Is it safe to use MagSafe 60W power adapter for this baby.

    According to Apple Portables: Troubleshooting MagSafe adapters, yes, a higher wattage power adapter can be used on a system requiring a lower wattage. So you can use a 60w or 85w power adapter on an Air, which comes with a 45w adapter.
