I was just wondering if there is any problems using a Macbook Air power cord with the Macbook Pro.

My power cord went bad and the only one I have access to use is the Macbook Air power cord. I know its only 45W but will it do anything bad?

Just to let everyone know, I used the Macbook Air power cord for about 2 days without any problems. I wasnt able to run anything demanding though or it wouldn't charge anything and the power brick would get really hot.

Blogging about good deals on apple stuff. Come vi
I stand corrected :D.
:D
There's a smaller wattage differential between a pb and an ib brick - 60W vs 45W if I remember correctly, so you won't see the big heat problems. The air brick is 45W and the MBP brick is 85W so you will see a lot of heat generated as the computer tries to pull more juice through it (I'll spare everybody the EE101 lecture :Smirk: ).
