Hey Everyone!

Just joined MacRumors, and have decided to purchase my first ever Apple computer - specifically the MBA 13". Being a Windows guy my entire life, I can't wait to get started on my Apple journey.

Anyway, my question is around regional differences. I live in Canada, but am currently travelling in Hong Kong. I wanted to take advantage of the currency and no taxes and buy my MBA here in HK, but wondering if there are any differences I should be expecting by purchasing my MBA in HK.

I already know that the MBA will come with the 3-pronged HK wall power adapter, but are there any other differences I am forgetting? (physical and/or software related)

Thanks!

The keyboard will be different:
Bought from CA website : English (US) or French layout
Bought from HK website : International English
Bought from US website : English (US), French, Spanish, Japanese

So the layout might be slightly different than what you're used to.

Software should be fine.
