    Hi, I'm from the UK and I'm ordering a new iMac from the US (New model)

    Will the wireless be any problem ?

    Will it have the same line voltage as the UK model?

    Does anyone know where i can buy a power UK supply/AC adapter for the iMac?

    Thanks allot, really appreciate it! :apple:

    How much cheaper does it work out to get a US model? Bearing in mind I'm eligible for HE discount, I think I calculated that there's only about £20 difference on an MBP all told, and that's before shipping.

    Anyway - I'm not sure about desktops, but the laptops operate at 110-120 to 230-240 volts, so you don't even need a different cable, just a US pin to UK pin travel adapter.

    Edit - from iMac tech specs:

    Line voltage: 100-240V AC

    Will you not have to pay VAT on the import of the Mac?
