You get such great deals on Ebay, or do you? Like this adapter from Hong Kong for less then $10 incl. postage when a new original Apple one is $45. Well, it did work great for 3 months and then, one day, the MacBook just showed me a little disco – the display was flashing in rapid succession; somehow the switch sequence to external display was failing and it kept on trying… after a while it stopped trying.  So, I dished out $45 for an original Apple adapter today and was relieved that it was indeed only an adapter issue and not a broken port on the notebook.

Still, I do consider $45 for this little adapter to be an epic rip off; that’s like you get 8 adapters for same money as a little netbook. Hmmmmm.
