Had a problem in my Al PB AC adapter cord, where as you can see the plastic cable housing split away from the base of the plug, exposing the wires. I've only had the PB since last July, so I was surprised to see the break happen so quickly and so soon. After calling Apple, I had a replacement adapter in my hands in less than 18 hours. Upon comparing the two, I noticed the design of the plug had been changed. Don't know if anyone other PB owners have had this problem, but you might want to check your cords, just in case.<br><br><br><br><br><br>

I have had the same problem with powerbook and iBook adapters for years(I must have bought at least 4 replacements for my iBook and I am on my 3rd one for my Powerbook which is less than a year old). I bought a new one recently and apple seem to have strengthened the bit that breaks (the rubber is thicker) and so It should break less easily.<br><br>"For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for Nature cannot be fooled." - Richard Feynman
