    According to some here, the 240W SLIM adapter does not have throttling issues with the M15X and does not require pulling the center pin. Otherwise, a right angle adapter is a way around the issue but they are hard to find unless you are in the U.S. Alternatively you can make an adapter of your own if you have some soldering skills and the right parts.

    Oh well. The right angle adapter it is then :D.

    Like I said previously, you can even make one yourself for a couple of dollars. Just get a Dell 7.4mm female power jack and a Dell 7.4mm male power plug and wire them together without connecting the center pin wire. You can even take it a step further and install a switch to switch between the middle pin being connected or disconnected. I made one of these if anyone is interested.

    As is the cpu doesn't hog much until you start nuking an xm and only then does it pull a lot power wise, using a slim 240w and it is pretty good so far even though the battery I have may as well be a potato (dead).
