im not too happy about this at all, its melted near to end similar to how this picture looks http://www.appledefects.com/?p=285 Any advice on how to go forward with this? Im out of warranty. However Im planning to go to the mac shop tomorrow and demand a replacement, or i will be going to the small claims court (i live in the UK). Im a huge apple fan, but this is potentially a serious fire hazard. If I have to pay £100 for the cable, it will also mean no iPhone for me on friday (im on a tight budget after also buying leapord & an iPod touch last week). Usually apple are excellent, so i hope they sort this mess out. This is not the only complaint i have with my macbook. Since i got my macbook, the top and the bottom were not inline but i was assured by people on the forum that this was common & i didnt find it a problem. However this has recently caused the bottom of my mac to have a crack on it. I also faced the random shutdown problems last year. I love my macbook however im getting a bit annoyed by all these problems; mainly because its preventing me from play world of warcraft. thanks for listening to my rant Ill post details of my apple store visit tomorrow & pics of the melted cable/cracked macbook later One thing to note, my cable only started to overheat once i installed leopard on friday. coincidence???
