MacBook Power Adapter Price

Hi All,
I'm looking for a replacement MacBook (2006) power adaptor. I know that there are tons of knock-off adapters on eBay and Amazon, but I want a genuine Apple part so I don't burn my house down. I think the $79 Apple wants is a bit of a rip-off... any thoughts on where I can get one cheaper?
Thanks!

Unless you are willing to buy a used MagSafe, $79 is what you'll be paying.

So no genuine adaptors floating around out there, huh? Thanks.
