Broken: Compaq laptop power plug
This is my new Compaq Presario 2100 laptop. They equipped the AC power supply with a right-angle plug at the laptop end. The plug extends past the body of the computer, which puts the computer at risk when setting it down. A simple straight plug would have sufficed and probably cost a penny or two less.
