i need your help. i have recently splashed out on a new computer with all the trimmings. im going to use it to help me get ajob when i go to australia. but then i suddenly had a crisis-- will it work over there? does anybody know what difference the power supply will make? i think it is a similar voltage (mains) but not exactly the same, can i just buy a bunch of adapters and the pc will still work??

any help much appreciated.

Just buy a new mains cable when you get there. Cost about A$5

2 best options, either buy an adapter for Australia, or change the plug on the end of your laptop cable to an Aussie one when you get there, works a treat , i just did that in LA
