You mean, the one they originally sold that is almost impossible to find? That one?
LiShin makes a coupla models that exceed the current/wattage spec for the m9700...they're hard to find also...http://www.shopbattery.net/alaum917slip.html
I actually called shopbattery and spoke with a very knowledgeable sales/tech person. She indicated a few may come in stock mid Jan 09...last 10 they had was mid Nov 08.
1st, I called Alienware to see if I may buy a m9750 adapter. I know that they have no m9700 adapters. I'm under warranty for a desktop and have bought a coupla other desktops from them, no notebooks. So figured lets just see how much clout Ol' Leroy has with Alienware...
Customer/sales support were very professional and polite. After about ten minutes on the phone verdict was, sorry 'Not about you not having a notebook...but more, NO m9700 adapters available and m9750 adapters are only stocked presently for the m9750 warranty customers.'
Fair enough...though that leaves the m9700 people out in the dust...not Alienware's fault directly. Like I mentioned before, with determination and speaking correctly, jrjohn was able to score a m9750 adapter for a m9700 from Alienware.
All hope is not lost.
