One of the things I envy the most about Macbook users would be the pretty neat MagSafe power adaptors. Aside from the fact that it’s much, much easier to plug and unplug your laptop, it also keeps your Macbook safe if someone trips on the cable. And have I mentioned the fact that it also reduces wear and tear damage? So yeah, that’s the one feature I really, really like about Macs.
Apparently, us PC users can get this feature too, but it requires us hacking our beloved laptops a little bit so we can get that coveted MagSafe connector for our Windows notebooks. The hack is also reversible, so if you’re planning to sell your laptop in the future, this hack won’t drive the price down.
A bit of a warning though: we’re still dealing with electricity here, and if you don’t know what you’re doing, I would advise you to not push through with this hack.
According to Lifehacker:
The mod isn’t very complicated but it does take a bit of patience as you search for just the right size magnets and nail for your particular laptop. Once you’ve found the right pieces however, the build itself is quick and makes your laptop safe from the computer-slaying feet of clumsy coffee shop patrons. Check out the link below for the detailed build guide along with plenty of tips.
