thank god for that. I have been powerbookless for a WHOLE WEEK. my
poor, dutiful power lead, which managed to withstand nearly 4 years of
daily punishment, finally gave up in an increasingly large puff of
smoke.due to a stupidly busy week at work and being away for the weekend,
I've only just managed to give mr jobs some more money. but oh, was it
worth it. especially with 11% illegitimate student discount. I can
download tv programs again! and save photos! and do web stuff! and
even do work! oh, beloved powerbook. we'll never be apart again.

£55 at full price, sadly :(

worth it though, considering the sheer amount of punishment I give mine. you can get cheaper versions via ebay, but a lot of them are dodgy.

£55! For a power lead! Shit me!

This has perturbed me. On further investigation Sony want £91 if I needed to replace my Vaio power lead!

I'm sure I can find an unbranded one cheaper, but I shall be taking extra special care of it from now on!

electric sheep - you poor man. I did look on the apple site, but the delivery times made me cry inside. how do these people think we can manage? I had to get a new battery a while ago. then it got recalled. then they sent me a new one. happy days.

james - I only paid £49, but still. I don't understand how people can charge that much for what they are! I wanted to get a proper one though, as I know how dodgy they are. warranties are good. don't bend yours to hell at the plug end like me ;)

James says:

Fortunately mine is a moulded 'L' shaped plug so it's not possible to bend it!

I'm not sure if it's covered under my (extended) warranty...you can bet it's the kind of thing they try and screw you on!

disconcert says:

there's still going to be a connection from the wire to the plug somewhere. that's the bit I seem to break so well ;)

they'll always screw people somehow, the bastards. take care of it!
