    I'm about to embark on a three month tour of Europe with my brand new MacBook. I'm deathly afraid of frying it by using the wrong kind of plug in Europe. Does anyone have any suggestions for a specific converter kit to buy and/or a brand? Any other general input for power considerations when traveling abroad with a Mac?

    Apple sell a world travel kit - this is a link to it on the UK store, but I'm sure there must be a US version.

    You just replace the plug head on the powerpack for your Macbook with the one appropriate for the country you're in - the transformer takes care of the rest!

    Thanks! I am actually leaving in a few hours and don't have an Apple store nearby. Hopefully, I'll be able swing by one when I'm in London In the meantime, could I just go to a drug store or a Radio Shack and pick up some generic converter kit? Also, I've never travel through Europe before and am deathly afraid of frying my computer. Any general advice?

    Best Buy also has them as listed on their site and in their stores.

    So if you have a decent Best Buy around, you should be able to pick one up.
