It only took 'em a year and a half to do it, but the ginormous monstrosity that is Apple MacBookPro 85W MagSafe power adapters have finally seem to have been reduced to a more manageable size. (Scale comparison above.) The same $80 that before got you the rather large 1st gen A1172 brick will now bring you home a 2nd gen MA938LL/A model that's sized closer in size to a MacBook 60W adapter, but still manages to crank out enough juice for your silver-clad Intel-based Mac laptop. The bad news: Apple store says 3-4 weeks for shipping.
