    I have an American MacBook on the way, and live in the UK.

    I'm wondering if I just need a simple adaptor to use the power supply in the UK? What concerns me is that the travel adapters that Apple supply provide power for:

    It is slightly concerning that the power supplies don't list the MacBook, but on the other hand, it could just be the Apple site updatey-people are too busy hurling new stuff around to bother editing old descriptions of adaptors? It seems to cover only older models, and I don't see why they'd design the MB to be a power-bitch, so I'm not too concerned, but it would be nice to have clarification.

    Macbook Travel Adapters

    I don't own the kit myself yet, but I actually just called Apple Customer Support to ask about this -- I was told that the kit is compatible with the Macbook. Also, on the "Design" (http://www.apple.com/macbook/design.html) page for the Macbook on the Apple website, there is a small section that advertises the use of the travel adapter kit, so I guess the omission of the Macbook from the kit product page was just an oversight.

    If anyone who owns a MB and has used it with the Apple travel adapters can confirm, that would be great.

    Good point, thanks! As I don't intend to travel much really, buying the Apple set is a bit of a waste; I'd only use the UK one. Still, thanks for the help - if it works with the Apple adaptor, it'll work with any; travel adaptors are just the same bits of metal inside, just I won't get the white shell. :D

    I can confirm that the MB power is absolutely fine with any adapter, no problems whatsoever, it hasn't even exploded yet! :)
