Welcome to MyDellMini
Seems ambitious... I like it! Definitely keep us posted, really interested in the MagSafe mod.

I would pay good money for a better power cord alternative on my 10V. What was Dell thinking? Not only is a wall-wart a PITA, rather than a brick mid-cord, but this particular wall-wart is SO DAMN BIG that depending on the layout of your power receptacle, it can makew the other receptacle unusable.
Anyone know of an alternative to the Dell OEM cord?
UPDATE: Chalk it up to another wetware failure. I did an ebay search and came up with these, of which I ordered two.

I went with this one because the tips were angled which is what I wanted:

Besides, it was like all of 9 bucks with shipping

wouldn't the macbook pro charger be more appropriate @ 18.5v? i figured that might work, but since i think i have a broken macbook charger laying around here i might try fitting the guts of the dell charger in there (if i can figure out how to open the damn thing). i've ordered one of these to add to my mini.

worse comes to worse i'll just attach the mac cord to the dell charger and still have magsafe for my dell
