I need a powercord for my Tibook so I can leave one plugged into my dock and one to travel with. Would anyone recommend this (http://eshop.macsales.com/Catalog_Item.cfm?ID=6432&Item=MICACADPTG4)?

Why not get an adapter from Apple?

That cable should work. I trust OWC to have tested all products, etc... They have very good tech support.

Duff-Man says....while I yhave no experience with that adapter...I do agree with crazyeddie...owc are not some fly-by-night operation that have no track record and won't be there tomorrow...they won't sell an adapter that does not work as they advertise it does...oh yeah!

Will this work with my new AlBook? I bent the tip on my Apple adapter and want something without spending $80!
