It's not an ideal solution, but if any of the PC laptop users among you are suffering from a case of MagSafe-envy, you can try to alleviate your John Hodgman blues by putting your considerable DIY skills to use -- at your own risk, of course. For some guidance, you need look no further than the step-by-step guide kindly provided by Instructables member "Breath," which is specifically tailored to mod a ThinkPad power connector (but should be adaptable to other laptops if you're extra 1337). While your adapter will never be the same again after you're done with it, your laptop should thank you for it the next time you try to send it for an impromptu drop test. The usual disclaimers, however, apply -- if you light your home/work/self on fire, it's your own damn fault.
