Hi,

Anyone know whether the it's okay to use the 85W magsafe charger intended for the 15/17" models on the 13" one?

TIA :)

Yes it will work fine... the 13" Macbook will draw the power it needs, which is less that the larger laptops.
 
Does anyone know if the other way round is also ok if not using at the time

it is, but you can't use it on a MBP when the battery is fully down as I noticed and at low battery using the DVD is also a no no....

But for topping up, I generally use my wife's power adapter who keeps it downstairs....
