Apple chargers-- they're nothing but trouble

So.  I love my Mac.  But these chargers are pretty much crap.  Brian had to replace his charger before he'd had his computer for a year.  Now I've had my Mac for a little over a year and the charger doesn't work any more.  At all.  We've both been using Brian's, but it's on its last legs.  It only works if you get it positioned just right and don't jiggle it or, you know, breath too close to it.

Remember back with the original nintendo where you had to get the game in just right or it wouldn't play?  That's this charger.  How is it that Apple can make such great computers and such crappy chargers?  Anyway.  The damn things cost $80 to replace.  I've been putting it off, but it's really starting to be a hassle.  I guess I know what I'll be spending some Christmas money on.

That's all.  I just wanted to whine about that.


  1. I just had to buy a new charger too! Of course mine is an HP, died after about 4 years and cost me about 67 cents to replace...

  2. Our iPhone chargers always crap out too. Apple sucks! ;) jk

  3. We had the same problem with my Macbook and Tice's Powerbook so we looked on Ebay and got a great deal. They were "authorized" but who cares. One costed us $20. You should give it a look.

  4. I haven't had any problems as yet and I hope that I don't as we have 4-5 apple products which are all approaching a year old..!!

  5. It is just the macbook chargers or do people have issues with all of them?
