    I know I might be a bit outdated, still using an iBook and whatnot, but can anymore remember while owning one if they ever had trouble with the charging port? On three occasions i've had to replace mine, the first with overheating through the charger and the charger producing smoke(replaced by apple no cost, after fighting for it), the second with the actually port being knocked out of place( ended up paying 200$) , the 3rd, and current right now, the charger or port not working (I have to bend my cable in every which direction to see where it works.) Am I too rough or has anyone else had this problem? Should I tell apple all of this and try to get them to replace it or will I be laughed out? And if it's just me, should I buy a new :apple:MB or :apple:MBP now (within the next two weeks) or pay the cost of getting it fixed?
    Sorry for all the questions, but i'd love some advice. Thanks in advance.

    Look for third-party adapters. They're pretty cheap and works okay.
