Dell Laptop Power Adapters - Compatible?

Does anyone if you can use a power adapter for a Latitude D600 laptop on a Inspiron 6000 laptop?

You should be able to.

The D-Family and the 600m use the same (identical part number) AC adapter. And I've used the 600m and the 6000 AC adapters interchangeably.

Plus, they have identical Tech Specs according to dell.com:
AC Adapter for Latitude D-Family
AC Adapter for Inspiron 6000

Just check the VDC specs on each of the adapters.
I KNOW!!! that the 700m and the 6000 adapters are compatible.

Which reminds me ...

Last fall when I went on a 2-week trip to San Diego with my 700m, I forgot to bring my AC adapter. So went to dell.com to order one. My then-roommate owned the 600m and I remembered that our AC adapters were interchangeable, so I checked the price for both. The 700m adapter was 10% off (from $30 to $27) while the 600m adapter was 25% off ($30 to $22.50). Guess which one I bought? Again, both have the exact same specs, just different part number. I ordered it Saturday night, they shipped it Monday, I received it Tuesday.
