Well today I noticed that in one part of my macbook charger the wire is peeling. You can't see any of the wires underneath but some of the white is peeling off. Is this a big deal? Also my Macbook is about 5 months old and I got it at Best Buy. I got a warranty so would I be able to get another charger for free do you think? I don't think this should happen to the cord after only 5 months.

Well, maybe you could post a picture here or something. However, since you can't see the wire and everything, it doesn't seem like a big deal at all. Like somebody said before me, just bring the charger down to the Apple Store and see if warranty will cover it.

There's still the warranty right? I'm pretty sure the Apple Store will cover all their products.

You can take it back to either Apple Store or Best Buy.

Yep. And you have records in their database on when and where you bought it, so they know when your warranty will end. In my country, they usually just ask for my name and other personal information to search through a database.

That is correct

Kind of good for you too because if one place decides not to replace it you can always go and ask the other one
