Update: I received the power adapter at 11:30am and it is working great. Apple makes it very easy to send back my old one too, all I have to do is put it in the box that the new one came in rip off the label (underneath the shipping label is the return label), tape up the package and it’s ready to go.
I’ve been tracking my power adapter through DHL and according to the latest update (which was about 2 hours ago) the power adapter is about an hour away from my house. My guess is that it has to come to the local DHL distribution center and then to my house but hopefully that means I will get it around noon.
This is the first time I’ve ever seen any value from the extra $170 or so that I paid for AppleCare, Apple gave me great service and the only thing they asked of me was to put a $72 charge on my credit card until they received my old power adapter. I’ve managed to get by mostly using my old PC but I still have about 2 hours worth of battery life left in my MacBook, that should mean I’ll be blogging today, but I can’t make too many promises.
