Can anybody tell me if the power supply for the MacBook is compatible with a 15 inch MacBook Pro. My brother has come from a visit and he has left his power supply behind.

i have done it to my MBP, but am not sure if it is safe or not. my battery is stuffed anyway so i didn't care.

I just went to Apple's Web site and have a look at the tech specs to see if I could get a comparison. According to Apple's Web site the tech specs on me MacBook Pro are 'DC input: 18.5 Vdc, 4.6A' maximum but I don't seem to be able to find the tech specs for the MacBook. As the MacBooks power supply is a lower voltage rating I guess it shouldn't hurt.

I think I found the answer on Apple's Web site.
