I now have another problem: The MagSafe cord. The bottom where the plug is frayed on me! I thought I could get it to work but I couldn't. I know it's $79 to replace it but I started Googling and saw there was a class action lawsuit where Apple had to do a recall on these puppies. It's also why the newer MacBooks have the L shaped MagSafe cord.
Here's what I'm confused on: The location of the fray. The photos that I've seen of this issue were up near where the mag is that goes into the MacBook. Mine is not. In fact, I have a photo to show of what happened. If this photo sucks in quality, I apologize since I took it with my cell phone.
I didn't even realize this happened until today. Needless to say I'm rather annoyed because while the plug is still being made, it'll cost $79. Now I called Apple after I saw online about this class action lawsuit and the replacement deadline I saw was end of July. The lady I talked to at Apple told me that I can get it replaced for nothing despite my AppleCare running out last year. But my question is this: The fray/detachment is near where you plug it into the outlet, not where the mag going into the MacBook is, would that matter? I know a few people here have either worked for Apple in the past or currently do, so maybe you guys can provide me some insight. I got lucky the last time with the chip since the guy at the store in Marlton, NJ told me that it was a flaw Apple knew of and I could get it fixed for free, so I'm wondering could lightening strike again?
Okay, I hope someone can help. I have a mid 2009 13-inch white MacBook. We all know it's got flaws, right? The case can crack and chip. I had that happen and Apple fixed it for free.
