I am spending 9 months in the USA very soon and am planning to take my laptop computer with me. I was just windering if i will need to get a new power lead for my laptop or can i simply plug into a US outlet using a travel adaptor?

There should be some indication on the laptop, a specification plate or where the power lead plugs in. Do you not hace a user guide?
