    Does anyone know if it's possible to buy just a power cord (the part that goes from the power brick to the outlet? I want to take my laptop from home to my work without having to crawl under my desk to plug in the brick with the short plug (i.e. leave the long cord part on each desk and just attach the brick).

    Thanks for any help you can give me!

    you check apple.com or call? you can buy an extra one in airport express cable kit i believe. There might be another kit that has it. If you want one cheap, if there is a local apple repair place go hit them up see if they will sell you an used one.

    if you can't find what you're looking for, then perhaps just buy a second power adapter from apple (or someplace else)? i have three of 'em so that i can plug in all around the house (the office, the couch, etc) without crawling on the floor to lug the cord around.. you could just leave one plugged in and waiting at both your office and your home?

    It is a "standard" part

    I think these are a standard item, used by many companies. Should be able to buy them are hardware or electric supply shops or maybe even Radio Shack. I think these cords were used in 1960's vintage black and white TV sets (before the standard wall outlet had three holes) but more resently I see them used on these power bricks. My cell phone charger uses the same cord as does I router/firewall box.

    You could also buy and power strip or surge protector to move the AC outlet to a more accessable place.
