    Scratches everywhere.

    For Lord sake, please design a normal accessory. Why everything has to be glossy? It has now thousands of deep scratches and millions of mini scratches. I'm tired of this, every single Apple product is super scratch-attractor.

    Bad power adapter

    I just got my Macbook 6 months ago and all of a sudden my adapter dies! From the reviews it seems like this is a common problem. I'm disappointed by Apple

    wasting money

    I'm beyond upset with the performance and price. No one has money just to pull out of no where and keep paying for a new charger. I have nothing good to say about this product that you need in order to have a MacBook Pro.

    Unreliable

    This is my third adapter in approximately 2 and a half years. I am beyond frustrated. This third adapter was purchased less than 6 months ago and it just stopped working one morning, after working just fine not even 5 minutes before. Not to mention the fact that the price is too high for such a cheap, unreliable and faulty product. They need to either make a better product to reflect the cost or lower the price to what is reasonable for this very poor quality product. This is very unsatisfactory, and you would think with such a name as Apple, they would want to take pride in not providing customers with this type of service, but I guess that is how they make more money.

    APPLE = communists

    owned my cord for a whopping 6 months. the cord pulled out of the magnetic tip like nothing. all the Amazon cords are used, leaving Apple as the only way to get a product that is new. but they don't ship to Military APO. thanks apple for stranding me in the desert with out a computer. you ever want to right this email me.

    Disappointed

    My second power cord in 4 years has melted again up near where it plugs in. I was talking to a technician and they said the 85 watt cords last longer because they do not heat up as much. Do not buy the 60 watt. If you've got to spend the money on a new one as I am sure you do get the 85 watt cord. Apple, you need to make a stronger long lasting design. I love my mac but I hate the cord and spending the money on them. I may not get a mac again because of their faulty cords.

    Shocked

    I've been waiting for four weeks so far for my replacement adaptor, under warranty ,which broke after five months. I'm absolutely horrified to read so many negative reviews for this product. Had I read them previously I never would have bought the MacBook Pro. If the replacement adaptor doesn't last for a reasonable amount of time I will be complaining long and loud to my Department of Fair Trading. This appears to be a product that is not fit for its intended use or of merchantable quality. About time people started petitioning and complaining. I have no intention of repeatedly forking out money for a faulty product. Plans to buy an iPhone and iPad are on hold for now.

    Most faulty piece of equipment ever

    I am onto my 3rd charger of these in less than a year!!!!
    My first charger just stopped working after 6 months then my replacement charger broke off into my computer just the magnetic bit. This was not covered under warranty because it was "physical damage" even though I never yanked it or tripped over the cord. Such a bad design and I dont know why apple hasnt done anything about it to fix these things!!!

    Not good at all

    I would have graded it half a star if I could. This charger died in 4 months....I bought my macbook pro a year a half ago. My first charger that came with the laptop broke in a year and 2 months. Therefore I bought this one to replace it. This "brilliant" charger decides that it is time for it to retire after 4 months. $80 for 4 months. Apple needs to start ripping me off and provides customers qualified products

    I hope the new is better than the old...

    I have a mid-2009 model, purchased 18 months ago. Has the old T-style 60W Magsafe adapter. Of course it failed. Although I made it a point to take care of the adapter and it never left my home, it clearly had design issues with too much torque at the magnet even with careful use. Horrible design and, to be honest, somewhat embarrassing that Apple has made the user foot the bill on a clearly faulty product. At $65-80 bucks a pop, that's a huge PR misstep on the part of Apple, especially when one considers the inherent quality and design issue of a product that costs $2K and above in many cases.

    'problem solved' was right

    mine lasted a year, then quit, then worked, then quit...after buying a new one, i tried what was recommended...i unplugged the bad one from both wall and macbook, let it sit for a while, plugged back in to wall, then macbook and voila! a green light. at least i have a spare, and will be spared another 45 minute trip to get a new one again.

    Frustrating

    I am on my THIRD charger in less than two years. I love my Mac Pro 13" dearly, but I am getting tired of spending $80 for this unreliable charger. I don't understand why these chargers stop working so easily. I have never dropped or in any way mistreated my chargers at all, and it's getting annoying having to pay so much money for a product that can't even last a year... :/

    Overpriced, fails often, ruins battery

    I'm on my thrid charger in just over a year. No big deal if Apple didn't overcharge by a factor of 4. Unfortunately I also believe it toasted the battery on my MBP. I was promised 10 hours of battery life when I bought it, but now I'm lucky to get 1.

    Poor design

    The original adapter for my 2007 MacBook lasted for three years. It finally died, so I bought a replacement- this 60W MagSafe Power Adapter. It lasted only 7 months before it broke. I replaced it again, and THAT one broke down in 6 months. Today I very grudgingly bought another adapter- my THIRD 60W MagSafe in 13 months- and I don't expect much longevity out of it. I've purchased every time at an official Apple Store.

    Compared to the previous design, the current 60W adapter is shoddy.

    Apple, do cord and adapter separate

    I need to replace whole adapter cause of pin. let Apple do charger and cord as two separate things, everyone would be more pleased - now its more unfair than "Not eco friendly"

    60w magsafe power adapter

    Apple needs to improve their power adapters. I shouldn't have to wiggle at the base of the "L" shape adapter in order the get the light to turn on. It hasn't been a year and I already have to get a new power adapter! From the reviews that I have read, Apple seems to have had this problem for a while. My MacBook was my first lap top, I hope it's not my last!

    Horrible

    I bought this product 7 months ago. I am now buying a replacement. This is the second time I've replaced this in less than two years. $80 x 3 is too much money to spend on a product that should work and last longer than 7 months.

    Good idea, but failed execution.

    The magnet part of the power adapter hasn't failed me due to the fact that I have tripped over it several times already and I enjoy not nocking my laptop onto the floor. But due to the fact that the cord itself is about 4 feet long, it renders the power adapter almost useless, unless you have an extensive cord of course. Since the chord is so short I find myself pulling the adapter falling out of my computer almost every time I move. Good idea apple, but make the chord a little bit longer for easier reach.

    very unsatisfied

    I have enjoyed macbooks for years but there is one thing I hate, the charger. Currently it has stopped working after only 5 months, where I took very extensive care of it only to end up with it to stop working for no apparent reason. I am very disappointed with the workmanship and am an unsatisfied customer. This should be a top priority or you will lose customers, I much preferred the hp cables which I NEVER had to replace.
