    Hello all,

    I have an 11" MBA and was having a minor problem with the MagSafe connector becoming disconnected too easily. It snapped in, but seemed to disconnect with the slightest tension on the power cord. I also have a first-gen MBA and never experienced the same issue.

    Well today, I noticed that the MagSafe connector wasn't sitting square with the MBA and when I looked in the port on the MBA, I found a small sliver of aluminum in the port. I assume it was left over from the manufacturing process.

    I fished the sliver out with a wooden toothpick and what do you know...my MagSafe connector snaps in nice and solid now.

    Thought I'd pass it along in case anyone else is experiencing "Weak MagSafe Syndrome." :D

    Man, I love the 11" MBA...what a sweet laptop!!!
