Hi Everyone,

Please first off dont answer if you are not a computer person and know what I am talking about.
So my question is this. In the three recent laptops I have had I have ended up with my dc power port getting looses and that is a hell of a repair. I am thinking if I use wires and don't attach the power port directly to the motherboard, but to the shell, and wires to connect it to the motherboard, this would reduce the issue of it coming unattached. Is this a feasible option? The power port becomes loose because it is wiggled bumped, etc. If I attach it to the shell via wires this reduces the wear on the motherboard. I can attach it to the shell and if it comes loose... no soldering on the motherboard just re attach it to the shell. I have paid to have this fixed more than a few times and it has come loose. I have already voided my warranty so that's not an issue. I was also considering the magsafe swap out. But dont know. Any useful ideas would be helpful.

Thanks in Advance.
Duncan Jones
