Need dual voltage laptop needed

One that also has an international warranty.

I know that Dell offer international warranties but I currently have a Latitude and I'm not at all impressive. I'm looking for a top end notebook that I can run on either US or UK voltage as I am emigrating in 3 months. I'm not very technical so any advice gratefully received.

As far as I know, all laptops come with power supplies that can be used world wide.

When you say "top end" what do you mean? Desktop replacement, light and ultra portable, or what?

Have taken my Acer and Sony laptops to US and to France and used them with no problem on the either supply.

As DS says the power leads (transformers) that come with laptops can be used anywhere

The power supplies(transformers) for the majority of modern laptops is

Input--110-240V AC 50-60HZ

This covers the voltage system spullied in all western countries.

I recently bought an ASUS laptop on behalf of a friend. It had a 2 year Global warranty included. Check this out. The model I bought click here was about £700 with free carry case included. Very impressive but the processor is battery hungry and realistically only lasts about two and a half hours if you`re watching a DVD or are multiple tasking the windows environment.

Green tick for resolved or do you want more suggestions?

If you're emigrating to the USA (?) - get one there - bound to be cheaper, and warranty much less of a problem-
