If I buy a Macbook Pro in USA can I buy an Australian powersupply (instead of using a chunky converter) to use when I get back home? Or are the computers built differently?? Thanx

All you need is the australia-appropriate little plug bit that attaches to the power adapter. The complete international set costs about $40 US from apple.

Apple 85W MagSafe Power Adapter $129.00
Even less...the power adapter is the same in the US and Australia. You just need the international travel kit:
