I recently bought my macbook in Australia so it has an Aussie plug on the end of the power cord but I live in the UK. I am currently just using an adaptor to plug it in but I would like to get the cable that goes from the white power box to the wall socket with a UK plug on the end. I have called into my local Apple shop and they do not sell them, all they have is a bog standard kettle lead. Does anyone know where I can get the white cable with the proper mac connection? Thanks in advance.

Why don't you just buy a new adapter from an Apple store in the UK?

Do you mean the whole thing including the white box with the magsafe attachment? If so, how much could I expect to pay for that? I would prefer to keep costs lowish.
Thanks for your reply.

As far as im aware, usually, the ones that plug straight into the wall also come with an AC cable so that it can be extended.

This way you will still have plenty of cable
