Mac Hardware: New “smaller” form factor power cord for MacBookPro’s now available


Apple seems to have quietly released a new MagSafe Power Adapter for the MacBookPro product line. After having no stock in the Apple stores (I know this for a fact since I was looking for one), they now seem to be in stock. It is more in line with the older power adapters and doesn’t have as big of a form factor as the old one. The only way that I knew that one was coming out was from asking an Apple sales person in the San Francisco Apple store a few weeks ago.

This is what the old one looked like (note that it is more rectangular):

This is what the new one looks like (note that it is more square):

Still sports the same retail price of $79.00 US. Most major online retails seem to have updated their photos and stock.
