Today I finally placed my order for the New Macbook, I found availability on Macmall.com, I had doubts in which model to choose, for the color I wanted (Space Grey) or to go for the 1.3 (they where the only two in stock), I ended up going for the first one, I just hope I don't regret it!
I need some help with the accessories!! Please Help!!

- First is: will the regular AC power adapter extension for mac work http://www.amazon.com/Power-Adapter-Extension-Apple-Macbook/dp/B009OA61UK ????

- Where could I get an adapter equivalent to the 80 dollar one from apple, that one is not available and I really need one, which brand should I buy?

- Could anybody recommend a thin sleeve for carrying the Macbook

- Should I buy a Skin for the exterior??

Thanks!!!

Yes - the regular AC extension works just fine - it also does for iPhones and iPads if you ever need it.

Google Hub+ on Kickstarter - they've got a great one designed, though it won't ship for a few weeks.

And I am trying one of these: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00VVV42NS/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A209HAH4Z0MGU9

If you look at threads on this board further down you'll see this has been discussed. Check out one about supersonic and neoprene sleeves, one about MacBook accessories on a budget and quite a few about power adapters.

Thanks to both, I had searched the forum but couldn't get the answers before!

Do you know if there is any adapter available now similar to the one Apple sells that allows me to connect HDMI, regular USB and also to charge my Macbook at once? I really need that and I am leaving the US soon!

You and me both. It's available on the apple store, but there will probably be a wait. Mine is already in the mail, but will be leaving for Guatemala before it gets in.

I got the Apple HDMI adaptor in the local Apple store 3 weeks ago. Stores do have some in stock even if the online store says they don't.
