    Yes, it's different. You'll need the MagSafe to MagSafe 2 Converter

    The MagSafe to MagSafe 2 Converter allows you to use the MagSafe connector on your LED Cinema Display, Thunderbolt Display, or MagSafe Power Adapter to charge your MagSafe 2-equipped Mac computer.

    Available in the Apple Store for $9.99

  • Read the section that says "what's in the box"; it comes with the Mag 2 adapter. No need to buy another.

  • No. I too was interested if this was the case and after speaking with Apple Support, the new MagSafe 2 is slightly thinner and so cannot also power the Retina MacBook Pro. You will need to use a seperate MagSafe 2 cable to bower the Retina MacBook Pro.
