Where you go to plug the AC adapter into the mini is loose. Just slightly moving the mini will case it to literally fall out. It was not like this before could heat have expanded the area around the AC input causing the loose fit?

I've been a bit skeptical about that connection ever since hooking up my son's mini. I'd give Apple a jingle.

Is it loose? You have other minis right and are they loose? I think the oval shape of the plug attributes to the problem. If they would've made a more defined socket instead of letting you plug it in either direction may have helped to hold it in better.

Mine have not come loose. However, I have not moved any of the three mini's since the RAM upgrades early on. If I had need to unplug and plug the power cord on a regular basis, I have no doubt they would become loose.
