    Form over function

    • Written by Alistair A from San Carlos

    Apple goes for beautiful product. In the quest for beauty function sometime takes a hit. This is the case with the power chargers. They are so heavy that they don't stay stuck in the power sockets. I had someone sitting next to me in a plane constantly plugging his back in so I just took mine out of my bag and plugged it in with this extension cable. In many hotels you'll find power sockets in the base of lamps and you won't be able to plug in unless you have the chord or start propping up the lamp with books or magazines. If you are a traveller, this cable is a must have.

    If you are a traveller you want to travel light. This cable is very thick and only comes in 6' lengths. It's a PITA for traveller. I miss my Lenovo.

    Invaluable but.....

    why wasn't this included with my new 4000 dollar macbook? The previous 2 had a cable. Aside from that I guess I have to buy this as the charger included with my new MBP is too heavy for older outlets and needs to be propped up so it doesn't fall out of receptacle.
    Not providing this cable with newer models is a gross oversight on Apple's part or possibly an intentional one in order to grab more cash from their customers. Shame on you Apple
