I just got my macbook 2 hours ago. But I found a problem.
According to the introdution in apple website, Line voltage: 100-240V AC.

But I only found 'E62405SP 2.5A 125V~' text on the AC wall plug. Is that said I can not use a 220V AC power?

Not where you live.
And what is the normal voltage for electrical items in China?

In the US and Canada it's 110, in the UK it's 240.

If it's 240, you might need to get a different power supply.

Generally, Apple power supplies are universal power supplies and will work anywhere in the world.

The specs are usually 100V - 240V and 50/60 Hz.

So if the plug says about 125V you are fine.

Note, while the power supplies are universal, the plug may not be the correct plug for your location so you may need to get an adapter for your specific outlet type.
