    hey! i just got my macbook a couple days ago and i will be flying for university in august. i'll be flying singapore airlines and its going to be a b777-300er plane and i checked, they have a socket or something for you to charge your laptops and stuff!

    i'm not sure if i'm supposed to bring an adapter or something but they said it would be a 110V AC in-seat power supply. can i just bring the charger or do i have to bring something else?

    THANKYOU! :)

    You might need the 2-prong plug, but you won't need the airline adapter that Apple sells.

    Don't really know what part of the world you are from, but you need a plug that looks like this.... Two thin prongs. The MBP adapter will do the voltage conversion. It's designed to go from 100v to 240v.

    It should have come with your Mac.

    If you're coming from Hong Kong and have the UK type-G plug, you'll need a type-G to type-A plug converter. Here in the US they're like $4.

    Yea all you might need is a conversion to a two prong plug.

    What college are you going to? You are from China so probably some ridic school ;)
