  3. Argh! I hate curved cords!!

My power cord for my Dell Inspiron N1050 laptop suddenly stopped working so I'm trying to find a third-party replacement since I don't trust Dell anymore, but all their adapters are L-shaped! I want my cord to go straight to the back of my desk, not sideways first! Any suggestions?

Power supplies die, every electronic device can die, it's a fact of life, and it's no reason to mistrust Dell. Dell doesn't even make power supplies, I don't know about your particular laptop but Dell often uses power supplies made by Delta, which is the largest manufacturer of power supplies in the world... they know what they're doing but like I said, no such device is infallible.

Sometimes I wish Gamefaqs had a thumbs up/upvote system for stuff like this... then I remembered what gamefaqs is like and it'd be 90% downvotes and the top 10% would just be a "positive feedback loop" (to use polite terminology).
