I'm buying what I think will be a late 2012 mac mini (so I can update the SSD and RAM first and put PS on it) to send to my Nephew overseas (Denmark). Is there anything I should know ahead of time?

I assume that the 220V switchover only requires the European plug wire, right? The computer will automatically switch from 110V to 220V as needed, correct? Does anyone know?

Any other issues I should be aware of before sending a set-up Mac Mini overseas?

Thanks in advance.

Yeah, he will propably need to pay local customs + tax. Because the tax office does not accept the "gift" tag.

My relative moves that same Mini between Europe and US routinely and only thing he has is unique cable for each continent. That is all. Works on both sides of Atlantic.
