    EeePC 900a EU plug in US?

    not an electrician, but I'm guessing someone will know off the bat, got a EeePC 900a with an EU power brick/cord, will this work in US with just a simple adapter like this one, or do I need a proper converter that would actually change the voltage/amperage? would not want to blow the now almost antique specimen sky-high.

    thanks.

    It depends.

    Some power bricks can handle different voltages and will say so on the label (ie. 110-220V) and others are restricted to the specific voltage of the region they're sold in. If the brick isn't designed to work with 110V, you will need a proper converter or a US specific brick that fits.

    Yes, that should be fine. If it has a cloverleaf power inlet then it should be easy to get a cable and avoid needing to use an adapter.
