Hello forum members,
I have purchased a used powerbook but the power adapter (computer plug end) is broken. Can these be repaired or could anyone recommend an alternative replacement. I have read the reports on the apple shop re original & people are mostly unhappy with them.
Thanks,
Cheryl.

Hi Cheryl,

you can get "universal" power adapters from Dick Smith/Jaycar/Harvey Norman but they can be expensive ($60 - 120) and will be bulkier than what you have now.

To be honest I've not heard of many issues with the standard power adapter.

I think your better off buying another one from apple or one from ebay
