Hey all. Quick question, still getting used to the Apple/Mac world. So my new Late 09 MB came with the "new" style magsafe power chord. Great! Question is though, my good freind has a left over power chord/supply for his mac. His power supply is the "old" style magsafe. However the supply is 60w just like the new charger for my new macbook. Would it be okay for me to use his power supply to power my new macbook? After all they are both 60w? or am I wrong? Gracias all!
