G4 Cube Powerstrip

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I have a friend who's power stripe just fried during a power outage, dispite his use of a surge protector. Where can he get a new one?

I presume you're referring to the external power supply that came with his cube?

Ebay is probably your best bet, or you could try a few Apple computer repair shops. (check in your local phone book) Maybe one will have one laying around, though it's unlikely.

My first machine was a cube and after the wife and I moved to a new place we had a power problem that resulted in the same scenario. I would recomend calling Apple and running this by them. At the time I was still under my AC warranty and it was replaced within 3 days. Those guys are pretty helpful I'd reccomend giving it a shot.

Thanks, but the warrenty ran out last year. I found one on ebay for half the price of a new one. I hope that it is the power supply and not the monitor.\

Wait, what? The cube didn't come with a monitor.

Not sure what you are alluding to here, but last I looked all computers need a monitor, whether it came with one or not....

timtalizing said, "Thanks, but the warrenty ran out last year. I found one on ebay for half the price of a new one. I hope that it is the power supply and not the monitor. \", which confuses me for two reasons. First, the cube didn't come with a monitor, so there's no such thing a "cube monitor". Second, how in the world could somebody confuse a monitor with a power supply? They're about as related as a watch and a stereo.
