I want to purchase a Macbook and take it with me to Korea, but is it a bad idea? I'm hearing stories, and reading some threads on here, about the laptops frying/dying/MELTING(wtf?) bc of the voltage difference. What can I do to prevent my MacBook from blowing up in my face and setting my apartment building on fire? lol. 1. I know I should purchase the correct wall plug. 3 prong to 2 prong 2. But what is this talk about a Surge Protector? What is it? Where do I get that? This will be my first MacBook so I don't want to mess anything up :/ Any suggestions?
