    MBA's weakest link

    I love the new MBA (MacBook Air) and I don't have an issue with the magnet on the power supply. The main problem is the power unit malfunctioning. After only 4 months the power unit just died, without warning. No light and no charge. I took it into the apple store, where it was tested and found to be faulty. I was then informed it would be further inspected by the technician and a 3-4 business day turn around. Meanwhile I can't use my MBA as it has no charge.
    With my unit and reading everyone else's dead power unit story's is that these power units die early. If you purchase a new MBA you can expect to have to return the power unit within a year. Which also means your MBA will be out of action.
    Considering the power units cost $100 theoretically you could be looking at spending $100 every year you have your MBA!!!!
    Apple really need to look at these power units. It seems a lot of people have similar short life spans on these things.

    Ok product.

    There is nothing particularly marvellously good or bad about this product. My comment to all the other bad reviewers is that I have had no problems with it, if it's broken get it replaced! Why do you have to rate it badly, I do 2 get the odd cable getting yanked out when kids run around cables but that I assure you is much better than your MAC FLYING into the ground! They are very durable unlike these other long ones with long thin pins that break itself and the whole pc if it gets yanked ground wards. I do recommend this product but make sure u get the correct wattage. Best go talk to the apple guys.

    Great Charger

    Love it. I can change the head for a long or short cable. Magnet plugs in well. LED indicates status. Smartest charger around!
