It seems to be a crapshoot: three attempts to replace my wife's at home
(2009 MacBook Pro.) First one failed after two weeks (cable loose at the
magsafe end) second one buzzed and heated up considerably right out of the
package. Third on appears to be "Apple brand" (many advertise that but this
one had the Apple tag and part #) and has been fine. I think it was $10
more than the others, which put it at ~$40. Still a bargain compared to
Apple's price! Must have fallen off a truck in China somewhere... I'll find
out where she got it.
