  • Excerpt: Used to power my Macbook Pro, Mid-2009. This is a replacement for the original adapter. Hopefully the connector on the end of the adapter to the Macbook does not break down or wear out as fast as the original one did.
  • Pros: Long Cord, Simple

  • Excerpt: Had to get this to replace one that is only 3 years old and treated like a baby. Very upset about having to replace this power adapter. Apple should design one that will last better. Would go with a different one if there were other viable options.
  • Cons: Too Hot
