    Hello everyone! I have a macbook pro late 2010, 13". I have it hooked up to a monitor and i use apple keyboard and trackpad. it almost never moves, or even gets unplugged. I opened my computer today to blow the fan out as it collects dust and i do not wanted to over heat.I do this once a year. When i took the cover off i noticed were the power cored plugs into, the plastic looks burnt. The computer is running well, but do these plugs usually go bad after a while. I have some pictures tell me what you think. Thanks!

    Are you using an OEM Apple charger, and does the charger plug look burnt? I'd call AppleCare, they are pretty sensitive towards these types of issues.

    It looks fine to me, it just isn't soldered very pretty. If it works fine, don't worry about it.

    Yeah i figure if i took it to apple, They would just say the computer is working fine ,and they would tell me not to worry about it. And yes i am using the charger that came with it. I just wanted to see if any one else has had any issues with this. Thanks!

    Could be the flux from the solder making it look burnt. Flux helps prevent oxidizing of the solder when its being applied.

    I work for a company called Jabil Circuit. Jabil has at times been one of the main manufacturing facilities for Apple (the other is Foxcon) I garentee you that your board didn't come from the factory like that. That board is a defect in class 2 & 3 circuitry. Most apple computers are class 2 but some high end models are class 3. I would contact apple immediately or better yet take it to an apple store if possible. Even if it is just Flux you paid for a level of quality that apple products represent and shouldn't tolerate this.
