Hi, I have a problem with my magsafe power adapter, and Apple Thailand has said my only option is to buy a new power cord because Applecare will not cover the magsafe.. Why did I spend 190 dollars on Applecare only to be confronted with a good ol' Apple "nickel and dime" clause. My power adapter is in fine shape and the cord is not damaged at all. The problem is with the gold connector pins. Some of the springs that force the pins out have failed, so the pins just flop in and out. Maintaining a connection with the failed pin springs is a serious PITA. Anybody else had their power adapter replaced after 12 months? I really can't believe Applecare doesn't cover this. What kind of warranty is Applecare? As Apple gains market share they're really going to need to get up to speed on proper customer service plans. Obviously I'll be calling Apple U.S. as soon as North America wakes up tomorrow.
