    Hi everyone - I'm intending to take my white macbook to France next month and know that it accepts the voltage change just fine (only need an actual plug adapter) - my question is about the peripherals that charge on my computer via USB - for example my digital camera that I'll be using - is it safe to plugin to the computer while it's running on the french power grid?

    Thanks!

    Yes. Apple power bricks can be plugged into both US and European mains. Peripherals powered from a battery or a port will also be fine, you only have to worry about things you plug into the wall.

    Edit: Also, don't bother with the Apple International traveler kit. Total waste. You can buy plug adapters at radio shack for like $5 that to the exact same thing.
