I don't think I have anything... but 19V is what many of today's
laptops use... Dell I know uses 19V.... and the powerbricks from
the current Latitude line should do 4+A, as well as possibly the
one from the Inspiron 5160 as well.

I believe later IBM Thinkpads, and likely the current Lenovo's
use 19V... so there should be quite a supply of supplies that can
do 19V....
