Can PC power adapters be used with Apple laptops?

Message #1 - Posted 2007/11/30 - Herbert Viola

Replacement PC power adapters are less expensive than apple power adapters. Will any PC power adapters work with a Titanium Powerbook G4(17inch, 1.6 ghz).

If it has the right plug - yes.
But I would not do so. You will not have the signal lights about the current state. The Apple power adapter is also the best adapter I have seen ever. It has a integrated security switch off, you don't have in the most PC adapters. I would prefer to buy a used original adapter at ebay. The 65W (white brick) you need, will cost you 35$ or less.
