    I am going to buy a Mac soon, porbably a mini and a new laptop soon after.

    But I live in Japan and I am British so my question is, can I simple change the language or is it a full re-intall of the OS? If so do I have to buy the OS?

    When you first boot the Mac, you choose the language you want.

    You can also go into the configuration settings after installed

    under System Preferences and reorder your language. Drag whichever language you want active to the top.

    I use it to switch back and forth to french/english
