MacBook GoldA lot of MacBook user report a certain voltage phenomenon. The same happened to me with a MacBook 12” early 2016) and a MacBook Pro 13” (early 2020). Plugging in, it feels like current or voltage is going through your hand or fingers while touching the MacBook, especially left or right beside the Trackpad.  It feels like micro-vibrations. It is not a buzzing you hear, you feel it with you run your fingers through the metal case.
