OK, bad news for me because my magsafe melted!
It started to get hotter and hotter each day until little holes appeared and finally it refused to charge and there was a hole in the wiring.
I emailed apple using a email i got from them and they told me to go to my local apple store. That i did, and came out with no magsafe as they said that they would get charged instead of apple getting charged. I emailed apple again and i have had no reply yet, I don't intend on phoning them or else i would have to pay £35!
I also tried PCWorld as that is where i got the macbook from and they said to phone partsmasters.co.uk.
On a side note, when i was on their website there was a 65 and a 85 watt magsafe, does the 85 just charge the battery faster?
Anywho ill upload pictures if you want to see what the wire looks like. But does anyone know another way to contact apple, or a phone number that doesn't have me paying £35 just to talk?

Lol, that really sucks...
Whend you get your computer?
Late 06, im under warrenty but having problems.
BumpI dont usualy bump threads but i thought i would update on my situation.My nearest Apple reseller, Western Computers, sent my magsafe off to apple in the end and after a few days got back to me (today) saying that they recieved the magsafe back from apple and still cannot replace the magsafe. Now correct me if i am wrong but by law they have to replace it (http://www.tradingstandards.gov.uk/c...V0054-1111.txt) i was also told that by othe rpeople who work with warrenties etc. I was told to contact apple but i have no way of contacting them without paying £35 to talk to them which is half the price of the dam charger.:(
they probably did it on purpose so you would have to phone them...
The thing is, Apple KNOW about this problem and have taken steps to FIX this problem by introducing a new version of the magsafe yet they still refuse to change mine.
This is their fix:
I need to contact apple in some way...and have a huge go at them...
lol, there is a website that finds other numbers for you (google: say no to 0870 ) and you put in a 0870 number and it gives you alternatives, but im not sure if it works or not. My plan is now to calle the Apple store which is free and have a go at them there.
good luck mate, show them ****ers :)
Heres some more magsafes burnt:
Apple should god damn take note of this, someone frontpage it :P lol nah but seriously this isnt acceptable.
