    Wouldn't he just need a plug converter?
    Aren't the power adapters useale in any country as long as you have the right plug on the end?

    I bought my MacBook in California and use it in UK.

    Don't need a new power adaptor, just the wall socket adaptor bit. I used ones from old iPod power adaptors, or you can buy a travel adaptor kit.

    You'll save a bundle, so the additional cost of the adaptor is easily absorbed.

    Cheers,

    you can buy a long plug to powerpack cable from somewhere in the UK like maplin for about £2.
