You should match the output voltage of the charger to the specs on the laptop. Make sure the tip of the charger fits your laptop. Make sure you get the right type of voltage for the country(s) you travel to. And my experience with "ease of use" and laptop bricks is that cord lenght is just as important as size and weight of the brick.
