I have a MacBook Pro computer and I will be traveling abroad to Hong Kong for studies. The electric sockets and voltage are different than here in the US so I would have to use a converter but it is a big hassle carrying around a power converter everywhere I go... I'm hoping to find another solution. If I purchase a HK MacBook Pro power cord will it work with my computer which I purchased in the US?

Yes, the MagSafe power adapters support dual voltage (100-240V).

According to the specs on Amazon for the 85W version:

Input: AC 100V~240V 50/60Hz

So long as the local input provides power in that range, you'll be able to get a local MagSafe compatible cord and your US MBP will be fine.
