My friend has the early 2008 model of the white MacBook. It charges fine with the older MagSafe adapters, but refuses to work with the new L-Shaped adapter. I have other friends with the same model that charge fine with the new adapters. Does anyone know why her's wouldn't like it? The models seem to be technologically identical. Thanks!

My early 08 mbp charges off of the L adapters, and my 11 charges off the old T adapter. Actually, ALL of the adapters will work for ALL my computers in the house (save the Lenovo, which needs the 170w, and won't work with the 90w bricks). That includes 2 MBP's and 2 macbooks. So, I don't got a clue. Despite what the Apple salesguy told my wife, it will work.

Yeah - I have a few other friends with the same model and it works fine. It's really weird, so I just thought I'd see if anyone had the same problem.
