Default laptop power adapters

I was looking at my laptops manufactures website for a replacement ac adapter and theyre like 40 bucks! Do cheap generic ones from radioshack work? If i get one with the same voltage and amps shouldnt that work?

The ones at radioshack will not supply nearly enough juice to the laptop, causing both dammage to the power adapter and possibly the laptop.

You want to get an adapter with the same or more output power, and 40$ is not bad at all.
