As you will know if you glance through my reviews I am an avid Apple fan and have had a number of different products come and go some stay and some move on fairly quick. This Apple charger is the MagSafe Power Adapter for 15" and 17" Macbook Pro's I'm currently using it on my 15" and have had absolutely no problems at all that weren't my own fault. So now to explain the problem which was my fault ... oops ... when the charger comes the actual white box you see in the image above with the Apple logo on it comes in a plastic wrapping. As I'm sure a lot of people do I tend to leave on some of the protective packaging in case there's any issues and I ... Read the complete review

This was one of the features I was quite intrigued by when I bought my Macbook Pro about a year ago now. It's another simple yet well thought out product by Apple, whose simplicity can actually prevent quite a bad accident. This accident can be common with other laptops when you accidentally tug on their chargers and pull them onto the floor breaking them. Luckily, Apple designed this power adapter in such a way by use of magnets, so it will quite simply be pulled out the laptop without dragging it onto the floor causing damage. The adapter fits in to the back of your Macbook Pro on the left side. The port is magnetic and I love the way the adapter is ... Read the complete review

THE BASICS: Retailing at around £50 this is basically a replacement adaptor for Macbook Pro users who have an unfortunate incident with a dog in the night-time (oops wrong story....) Having had to spend £150ish on replacement chargers for previous laptops (admittedly in the days when hardware was much more expensive -- you see I seem to leave adaptors here there and everywhere) I didn't feel too hard done by having to purchase this for £50. THE LOOK: The picture attached to this product (above) is midleading. Whilst the main adapter body is identical, being adorned with the apple icon in relief, and comprised of glossy white plastic, ... Read the complete review

This is not the power adaptor that was supplied with my macbook pro originally, but I bought this version about a month ago after the original was destroyed by my delightful pets! This adaptor cost £59.99 from my local Apple Store, the price is the same online bit you would have to pay postage and packing too. This product may be available slightly cheaper on Amazon but I needed it urgently and also wasn't sure from the description that it was exactly the same product as the image was different to that on the Apple store's website. I feel £59.99 is a very high price for a power adaptor, considering that I bought one for my old Toshiba for around ... Read the complete review

In my old job I was given a MacBook Pro to use, and the Magsafe power adaptor came with it. This power adaptor comes with Apple notebooks under this generic name, although there are slightly different variations (depending on what kind of Apple laptop you have and what generation it is), so always check which manufacturer 's code you need if you want to buy a spare or replacement. Apple chargers have historically been difficult - in fact they have continued to make chargers known for exploding (!), but the MagSafe adaptor seems to be free from this problem. Therefore I would recommend buying only from the Apple store or an authorised Apple reseller (both of ... Read the complete review
