    So I just bought a Mac Mini (which should ship soon) and I was going to buy the (overpriced) international travel kit that Apple sells for adapting the power plug for different countries as I'm headed to New Zealand for an extended trip at the end of the year.

    It turns out, however, that Apple's prong adapters are only for the iPods and laptops. The power brick for the Mini has a completely different design. It is rated for 110-240V AC so all I need is a cheap prong adapter, but for some reason I would prefer to have an Apple supplied cable. I thought Apple might sell a different power cable, but I couldn't find it online. They must ship new Minis to NZ with the proper cable, but is there anywhere I can buy one online?

    I live in the UK and needed a US mini cable... I phoned Apple up, they charged me and it was with me the next day. I was amazed! Seems like they sell them, but only by request!
