The power cord which energizes my laptop is starting to fall apart. It has to be placed just so in order to get any juice into the computer. And it’s getting worse.
So I’m thinking I’m going to need a new one. But that’s going to run me $80. Now, it occurs to me that the power cable that comes with the iPod will also work with my PowerBook. So since I have to get this thing, do I shell out the $80 for the cable by itself and come away no better than I started out? Or, do I look at it as an opportunity to get an iPod for 25% off? What would you do?
Update: Nevermind. It’s not compatible. I could have sworn they used to be. Oh well.
