    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?

    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.
