    So I invested in a beautifully slim, lightweight ultra book. I love it, but was really disappointed to find that it came with a regular bulky power adapter.

    Anyone know where I can get a slim lightweight version to go with my slim, lightweight laptop?

    You might want to mention what voltage and current your machine requires if you want specific recommendations.

    Ok good point as I have no idea. I had assumed they'd be the same for all

    No, It does vary. Power use obviously varies - although lightweight machines tend to use little power to maximise their small batteries so that's less of a concern.

    Voltage also varies, possibly due to different battery configurations, but you do need to find out what input voltages your laptop will accept before you can start looking at power adapters. It should say on the manual and on a label on the laptop. If you can't find it then the adapter that came with it should detail it's output.
