All, while perusing eBay for miscellaneous items, I ventured across this:
I have an adapter from them for my ASUS A8Jp, and it’s worked fine for 6 months – build quality is nice. I went ahead and ordered it using the Live! Cashback, so it cost me $35 instead of $40 … will let everyone know how it is when I get it.

Mmm, I got a Lacie power supply from the same seller, and they sent me the wrong one. They agreed to take it back, but it would’ve cost me more in postage than the adapter cost, and they wouldn’t refund it. My advice – steer clear if outside the US…December 4, 2008 at 2:10 pm #173692

That’s why you argue about it via PayPal & eBay – there is so much power to the buyer now that it’s hard to get screwed if you put in the effort. I’ll let everyone know what I think about it when it comes in.December 4, 2008 at 2:39 pm #173698bgalfondMember
Does this have some advantage over the adapter that comes with the nc10 or are you just looking for an extra?December 4, 2008 at 3:59 pm #173693
Looking for an extra – I like to keep one in my bag all the time and one at home – that way all I have to do is grab my notebook and mouse and take off instead of wrapping up the power cable.December 9, 2008 at 3:14 pm #173694
Ok, so the output looks like it’s set at 2.63A instead of the 2.1A provided by the original power supply – could this ruin my netbook?December 9, 2008 at 3:54 pm #173691jezMember
eek – well I guess anything unofficial is going to be a risk. Personally I’d stay clear but that is an opinion based on fear and paranoia and not science lol!December 17, 2008 at 4:29 pm #173700kangfoo2Member
Bit the bullet and purchased the ac adapter on ebay. So far it seems to be working fine. Battery charges normally and there are no weird hot spots on the netbook near the power jack.December 17, 2008 at 4:47 pm #173695
Yah, meant to update – this is my main power adapter at home now, because the cable length and brick size on the original one is smaller, so more portable. I’ve had no issues with the one from eBay, so look at it as a decent alternative!December 17, 2008 at 8:22 pm #173699saureyMember
Have you guys looked at the Mini 9’s adapter? It’s like a Blackberry adapter or other cell phone charger. I like it because the brick is at the plug instead of middle of cord.December 17, 2008 at 10:22 pm #173696

No, but I’ll take a look at my Mom’s this weekend when we go visit. She’s probably going to be mad that I ended up not getting a Dell, but I couldn’t have used the SSD. *hugs his 320gb HD*
