Hi, I am thinking about buying a refurbished macbook pro from USA, through official Apple website. I know it comes with a one year warranty, but can anyone help me and tell me if it is gonna work outside of USA as well, if it is international? Thanks! Z.G.

Well, the warranty is as long as i know is international, so you would be safe.

Warranties on all Apple devices (except iPhones) are international. iPhone warranties are only valid for the country in which the device was purchased.

Maybe, just maybe the OP is querying whether or not the Macbook will work outside the USA.

If that is the case, and I stand to be corrected, then the answer is a conditional yes.

He will need to be aware that buying any product with a keyboard that the layout will be different. This is more of an issue with a laptop because its easy enought to get a new keyboard for a desktop. The key difference may well be that the # instead of a £ symbol on the 3 key, it is also unlikely to have a € symbol. You can change these in settings, but they won't be marked on the keyboard, which could prove annoying.

Finally there is the fact that the plug will be different - although there shouldn't be a problem with the voltage.

If I am wrong and you were concerned about the warranty being international, my apologies but I can confirm that it is certainly international.

The keyboard settings can easily be changed so a £ sign is generated by pressing shift-3.

Thank you all very much :)
