    Hi there,

    I have a macbook pro which was purchased in america, however I am moving overseas and was wondering if it was possible to change the region of my computer.

    New Zealand is required by law to have region 0 dvd players, however I'm not sure if this is possible to alter with a USA mac.

    Any help?

    I'm where I need to be
    When you put in a DVD from a different region, it will ask you if you want to change the region on the drive. You can only do this 5 times before its locked into a region. Although many DVD players in NZ do play DVDs from all regions, the DVDs most widely available are region 4. In some of the larger video stores you'll find region 1 stuff though.
