    After buying not one, but two Apple 27" Thunderbolt Display's (huge mistake, I know) the Thunderbolt cable has started to fray, and the power adaptor has started to become un-responsive (won't charge without manipulation).

    I wouldn't really mind, except for the fact the image now regularly stops on both screens.
    What a great purchase for $1,099 AUD a pop, eh?

    What would be the best course of action, MacRumors?
    For warranty reasons (or lack there of) I'm in Australia, with a purchase date of Nov. 27, 2012.

    Your best bet is to take it into an apple store and explain the situation. I wouldn't do anything else until you take care of that.

    There is certainly a way to open the display and replace the Thunderbolt cable, but I wouldn't even attempt that until you make a trip to the Apple store
