This morning, my power adapter looked like this. Not safe…
It now looks like this and I didn’t have to pay anything! My Macbook is 4 years old and out of the Apple care warranty. I googled “broken Magsafe adapter” and the result was lots of tutorials of how to fix it. Most of the tutorials started like this… grab a blow torch, a file, 4 sets of pliers, and 3 knives.
I am not trying to break out of prison—just trying to get a little juice to my laptop. I stumbled upon an article about a faulty design and that some models were being replaced for free! I set an appointment and while I was there, the Genius (what a great job title!) realigned my laptop after a little mishap involving a flight of stairs and concrete which left my CD player smooshed.
This concludes my story on why I love my Mac.
