MacBook Pro Palm Rest Tingly Beating ProblemI afresh got a fresh 13.3 inch MacBook Pro as my primary computer and am still accepting acclimated to it.
I brought it to Europe for a appointment and noticed a actual aberrant affair that is not broadly accepted or advertised about aluminum Macbooks.
This botheration affects Unibody MacBooks and aluminum anatomy MacBook Pros. Apple gives users the best of application an addendum bond with their adapter or by application a “travel plug” that allows the adapter to bung anon into an outlet.
Many of these biking plugs are not electrically ashore (i.e. not a three bender plug) so back the laptop is placed on a non-conductive nor ashore surface, you can feel a bit of changeless electricity on the aluminum casing.
If you run your fingers over the casing, you can feel a slight beating or a array of “texture”. Some may call it as a tingly feeling. From what I accept been told, this is altogether harmless. You can analysis to see if it is absolutely acquired by the non-grounded bung by unplugging it or application the three bender bung and see if the activity remains.
I would say this is absolutely a architecture blemish on Apple’s allotment and a disadvantage for accepting an absolutely metal casing. It was alarming at aboriginal because I anticipation the beating was from my adamantine drive but I’m not abiding if I feel more good alive that’s electricity abounding into my palms!
