    Dell Vostro 1500 AC Power Adapter 65W ?

    Ok, I need to replace my AC Power Adapter, as mine has quit working, I went to Best Buy and bought a universal adapter but it cost me over a hundred bucks, it is still in the box, I then looked at Dell online, and they have the adapters at half the cost, I looked at the reviews and they are not good, so what do I do now? The one I bought at Best Buy was 90W, the that Dell offers is 65W. I will say that the reviews for (Rocketfish Travel Laptop AC Power Adapter) are not good either. Any ideas out of you technical people out there?

    Thanks for your help.

    How can this only be around $13.00, when Dell is selling the 65W for around $60.00? I have never used eBay, so I just do not want to get took.

    Because the one that he linked to is a cheap, non Dell made replacement. You want a Dell PA-10 (90W) or PA-12 (65W) adapter. Here's a Dell made PA-12 for $20 shipped: ORIGINAL DELL INSPIRON 1501 6000 6400 PA-12 AC ADAPTER - eBay (item 320436002920 end time Mar-13-10 11:08:56 PST)
