I called HP today. (BTW, I think that people in India need jobs but
why the heck do they have to handle the PHONE? Can't they do other
work for HP? They might be perfect computer programmers but they were
really hard to understand.)
They told me that that I have to pay around $ 80,-- for a new PC or AC
adapter. Why is that little black box that goes in my computer and the
wall power outlet so expensive?
Do know know where to get the stuff cheaper?
Re: Why are HP Power Adapters so expensive and can I use another adapter for my HP Pavillion dv6000?
I guess for the same reason the popcorn is so expensive in movie
theaters; that's where they make their profits. Due to the competitive
nature of laptop business, the profit margin is probably pretty slim on
the laptops themselves. However, once they sold you the laptop, they
know they hooked you with the accessories and can charge pretty much
what they want.
