Who knew that the AC plug above is called a "Duckhead" by Apple?

Not me.

Long story short: "Learn which power adapter, power cord, and plug are appropriate for each Intel-based Apple portable. Keep in mind that size, shape, and color of replacement adapters and cords may vary. Power adapters for Intel based Apple portables are available in 45W, 60W, and 85W varieties. Although you should always use the proper wattage adapter for your Apple portable, you can use an adapter of a higher wattage without issue. For instance If you have a MacBook (13-inch Late 2009) that normally uses a 60W adapter, you can also use an 85W adapter with that computer. You would not use a 45W adapter with that computer; it would not provide enough power for that MacBook."
