    first of all: hello everyone :)

    i will be going to the usa for an exchange year in august 06. therefore i want to sell my current pc (which i bought in october 05...) and buy a notebook. i've never been really interested in macs as i am more or less a gamer. but i think that's about to change, at least for the next 12 months ;)

    But due to the fact i want a notebook which
    a) has a long battery lifetime
    b) doesn't crash every now and then and i might lose all my photos/videos i will take during my exchange year
    c) i can take to classes on college
    i am considering buying an ibook/macbook.

    Of course I will wait for the new ibook/macbook to be released and see what i can afford.

    My question is:
    If i'm going to buy an ibook/macbook over here in germany, will i experience any difficulties regarding different electricity voltages between germany/usa? Like if the battery won't have as a long lifetimes as it would have with german electricity/voltage? Remember that it's a full year i will run the notebook on a different voltage, not just like a week or two.

    Or the other way around:
    I also considered buying an ibook/macbook in the usa because the euro is a bit higher than the dollar (and it hopefully won't change until august. ;) ) so i might safe a hundred euros or so. but again: what about the different voltages?

    I'm looking forward to your replies :)
