    Hi all,
    I've been living in Japan for 7 years and will be moving back to the UK at the weekend. I have a 24" iMac and am wondering if I'll need to use a transformer or something similar.

    I know that the line voltage for the iMac is 100-240V AC and the Frequency is 50Hz to 60Hz, single phase. The voltage in Japan is 100v and the UK is 240v. Does this mean I can plug the iMac in directly to the power socket in the UK or is it likely to blow the hell out of it?

    Thanks in advance.
