    MagSafe question Mac Book Pro
    im just a little confused about the MagSafe adapter
    which way does it go?
    since the adapter has a 90* angle on it, that mean it can attach in 2 directions
    with the cord toward the trackpad
    or
    with the cord away from the trackpad

    there are only 4 pins inside it
    so which way does it attach?
    does the right angle need to be toward the trackpad or away?

    thanks

    Which way does not cover the ports adjacent to it?
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

    It will work both ways, but the more convenient way is to position it NOT covering any ports, which on my MBP is away from the track pad.

    Depends, sometimes the convenient way is to cover the ports

    Generally when using it in a space restricted environment....

    In short, it really does not matter.

    MagSafe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    "MagSafe has connector pins that are designed so the rectangular connector can be inserted in either orientation (however, the L-shaped version of the connector can only be fitted in one orientation without blocking neighboring ports, such as USB)."
