Where to buy cheap laptop power adaptors??

Have rung around to various computer and appliance stores for a new adaptor and they range from $90-$200. Does anyone know where I can buy a cheap 90W adaptor less than 90 bucks?

Just be aware that some of those adapters are like Chinese fireworks. Don't ever leave your laptop plugged in unattended 'cos you may come back to a smoldering hole in the carpet.

I got mine on here from barbiedolls, seems to advertise lots - all good so far (2 months, doesn't run too hot).

I don't think buying a cheap one is worth it.They either blow the laptop Regulator up going over or under volts or get very hot a few have burst intoflames looking at feedback.A far better option is to buy a second hand original manufacturers charger off here.The aftermarket Dell chargers don't work as they don't have an ID chip in them.You didn't mention what brand you're looking for.
