The Chinese knockoffs on ebay aren't too bad. They cost about $30.

The Macbook AC adapters are notorious for not having enough strain 
relief. I strongly suggest reinforcing both ends of the cable from the 
AC adapter to the Mac with about a gram of epoxy. I did that with my 
third one, and I haven't needed a fourth. Doing so makes it pretty ugly, 
but I prefer ugly things that work over pretty things that don't.
