Is a 45 W MagSafe Charger going to work for MacBook model A1181 (2007)?

...or I need 60 or 85 W charger?

Does 45 W MagSafe only work for MacBook Air or also for other Apple Macbooks?

Get the 85 W, with it you can connect anything and it will not budge. Using to small charger creates lots of problems. –  Buscar웃 Sep 21 '13 at 16:27
^...and that's probably also the reason the price is the same on all three products. –  CousinCocaine Jul 3 '14 at 7:17

Apple says 60W. Page 7 of this pdf manual.

45W is just for the MacBook Air

To add, a 45W charger might be sufficient to sustain and perhaps slowly charge the MacBook, but it'll certainly be sub-optimal. –  XAleXOwnZX Jun 2 '14 at 8:31
