(Almost) Total (AC Adapter) Recall
If you have a Dell laptop bought at some point in the past four years then, unless you like living dangerously, you'd be advised to go visit www.delladapterprogram.com to find out if it's likely to explode in your face or electrocute you. There are about a million faulty AC adapters out there (990,000) and they've issued a recall for every one of them.
Mind you, if you have a Dell, you may view either of these alternatives as being blessed relief from having to use it.
