As if it weren't enough that the discontinued Inspiron 9100 is a behemoth... the AC adapter weighs like 5 pounds! I was curious if there were alternatives to the Dell AC adapter. I'd like to be able to use my laptop on the go, but that extra 5 bulky lbs on top of the already gigantic laptop is toooo heavy. Are there compatible alternatives out there that Dell doesn't want me to know about?
I've looked into it and found some universal adapters that come with like 15 port plug options, as well as a nifty looking iGo adapter that is like 20 bucks. Are they wastes?
What if I use the cord end that goes from the laptop to the adapter box WITH another adapter? What do I have to worry about, voltage? Will that cord fit something else?
Thanks for the help,
