Apple made a change to the magnetic contact to charge the Mac. My old one came apart at that magnectic end. The new one lays flat in order minumize damage to the wire. Great idea!! It works!!

I ordered the 85W charger online very easily. I requested and paid for overnight shipping. It arrived the next day with no issues.

It's a power brick...

2011-05-14
By MarkFromNJ

I bought this for a 2011 MacBook Pro 17". My original adapter is fine but I wanted a backup for travel etc., rather than having to dig around under the desk every time I wanted to move the machine.

Works as you would expect. Kudos to Apple for cramming 85 watts into a box 1/3 the size of the one that came with my last computer (a Toshiba PC laptop).

The new magnetic attachment has taken a lot of heat on the web due to its redesign: the cord now exits from the rear rather than the side. I find this a much better arrangement as the cord, when attached, now naturally flows out of the back of the machine. I think people often miss the point of this design - the magnetic attachment protects not just the cable, but more important it protects the laptop. This is such an improvement from my previous PC laptops where the connectors would be damaged due to accidental pulls (trips, usually) on the cable. I spent 3 hours once to replace a $3 power jack on my daughter's HP laptop after it was damaged this way. The machine literally was disassembled down to the last screw to get at the PCB that held the power jack in order to solder the new one in. If you had to pay for that, well, you couldn't afford it. That sort of damage simply can't happen with this design. So if the choice is to replace the power supply now and then, or (for most of you) to replace the laptop because the repair costs more than the machine is worth, I will take the Apple approach any time.

Don't wind the cord around the hooks

2013-10-14
By Anonymous

This adapter worked very well for a year and nine months. At that point, my habit of tightly winding the cord around the convenient cord-holder-hooks took its toll: the wire frayed and broke, right at the base. Now I have to buy a new adapter. When the new one comes, I will be transporting it with the cord looped loosely in a figure-8 instead of wound around the hooks.

Needs redesigning

2015-11-21
By Joyfulmomof6

The design is very poor...the tip ends up fraying after several months of use. No matter how careful we are with it, the power cord doesn’t last
