I found this http://www.gpsforless.co.uk/product_det ... p?id=15055 but it's being sold in the UK. Looks like it would cover most laptops as well.

Igo finally has them. They have one that with different tips will serve as ac/dc supply for my other dell notebooks and for my g4 macintosh notebook.

igo i think is a good company so i probably will go with this if something else doesn't come forth in the mean time

After a bit of research I think I'm going back to my original recommendation.

Yes, if your inverter is from 1985 or if you bought a no-name shady brand then don't use it with your Mini 9.

This is the one I'm using. It's from Radio Shack.
