    I have an ibook and imac....I'm moving from the UK to the USA and want to bring them both with me - is this possible on the different power supplies?

    I have looked on the internet for a usa plug to fit the ibook power battery ( which looks identical to the UK one, just the slot on plug is different) and the cable for the back of the bluberry mac but can't find them.

    I'd ring apple in the UK but they won't talk to you unless you still have apple (don't) care!

    the iMac's powersupply handles both voltages automatically and without problem. All you need is a new power cord.

    can't say for sure the iBook is the same way, though I'd suspect it is.

    Have you ever checked out apple's online support forums. They are a wealth of information, as is the knowledge base on apple's site.
