    I'm going to be traveling with my ibook and need to get a power cord that will work in Europe. Any suggestions as to where I might be able to get one inexpensively? Perhaps used? I'd rather not spend $100 on a new power cord for only a month . . .

    your probably going to need to get some sort of adapter thingy... I haven't been there, but some family of mine has and thats what they had to use.

    Edit: after looking at the adapter... it accepts 220V input. You just have to get the right plug for it since they are interchangeable.

    you can get a set of plug adapters. you don't need a new cord.

    no, not at the airport. I'd buy it before you leave.

    Walmart is your friend...

    Walmart sells $19.99 adapters in their luggage section.

    Or alternatively, go into any electronics store, and usually they have them for around $5 to £10 max.

    Failing that, try Target.

    I know, cos' i'm from here in England, UK !!

    Good luck.
