lap top is great! But......
Posted by: Pamalamb from: Middlebury,Vt on
Have owned 2 MacBook Pro's for almost 2 yrs now & will be purchasing our 4th power cord/ac adaptor. The connector to computer breaks over time. Apple needs to redesign this. Cord is too fragile and gets bent frequently which causes it to fray.

worst power adaptor I have seen
Posted by: jcmnyc from: Colorado Springs on
I think Apple Corp. knew what they were doing when they made this cheap, overpriced charging cord for their laptops. I am on my third charger for the one computer. I have never seen such a ridiculously made cord. Why couldn't it be like any other cord you can get out there. The wire that goes from the power block to the computer is so thin. What were they thinking. It just doesn't hold up. But guess what folks, if you have an apple laptop, you are just stuck with it. It is in no way universal. What a ridiculously high price for such a thing!

Third mac charger-this one just broke too
Posted by: oceanstate from: RI on
This was my third mac charger in the two years I've had my macbook pro. It too just broke after only 3 months of use. This is getting ridiculous these chargers are expensive. The first I had for a little over a year so it was out of warranty. I bought a refurbished one the second time to try to avoid paying the astronomical $80 for a new one. That one broke too and didn't have a warranty. I bought this one new so I could have a warranty. Hopefully it works because I've already shelled out close to $120 on chargers for a computer that was expensive to begin with. I take good care of my chargers and typically use them at home and don't even move them. none of them showed any sign of damage, just stopped working. This is not best buy's fault of course but apples. I can't believe this is still a problem considering how long the macbook has been out. I love macs but this is a major drawback when you can buy a pc and have the charger last 10+ years.

Costs too much money for something so poorly made
Posted by: macbookowner from: Washington, DC on
As others have mentioned, this product seems to have a maximum lifespan of about a year, if you're lucky. I've gone through three in the last year - that's $240. I'm not particularly hard on my computer or my charger, so I really don't understand why it doesn't last longer than it does. If these power adapters cost $20, I wouldn't complain, but they're $80. I came on here to complain solely because I just had yet another adapter go out on me and I'm now thinking about biting the bullet and just purchasing a cheap Windows computer rather than buying yet another $80 power adapter. Very frustrating.

very poor construction
Posted by: cjrocks from: mi on
I am on my 5th power cord since buying my Mac Pro about year and a half ago. I don't travel, sits on desk all the time, not quite sure how it just quits!
$80.00 per cord to replace, that is ridiculously expensive!!!! No I would not recommend purchasing the cord, but, Mac Pro is no good with out it, so they give you NO CHOICE. at least this one i will be able to replace, I have receipt and it's only been a few weeks this time!

Apple fails again
Posted by: Jopicket from: Crawfordsville, in on
Apple is doing a stellar job of cornering their customers as far as replacement cables/cords go. No real, viable aftermarket products for charging and their product is the same quality, or lack of quality, as the iPhone charging/sync cables and the iPhone headphones. The cable sleeves pull apart from the block and connecting ends. The cables tear if they are kinked, creating a short. Apple needs to revise their design for
All cables and cords. On a positive note, the MagSafe connection is a great safety feature. I'm looking to be spending $80 a year to replace the power cord for my MacBook pro and for such an expensive computer, that is completely unacceptable.

Never had a charger brake before!!!!
Posted by: krvist from: Massachusetts on
We have owned many laptops. For Christmas I bought a 13" Macbook Pro. Love the computer but the charger just stopped working yesterday. I have never had a charger brake before. My laptop only has 10% battery and now I have to run out to get a new charger when I just got it 6 months ago. The charger is in a very low traffic corner of the house and hasn't left that corner of the room since I got it. At $80 a pop this is completely unacceptable. I can't say I recommend it but there are no other options to charge your computer. Apple needs to make these more durable. Very disappointed.
