    Hi, I am relocating from the UK to the US and want to ship my 27 inch Thunderbolt display.

    It has an AC cable for the UK. Can I use it in the US with an adapter or do I need a voltage converter too?

    UK specs here: http://www.apple.com/uk/displays/specs.html

    Input voltage: 100-240V AC; 50-60Hz
    Maximum power: 250W (Thunderbolt Display while charging MacBook Pro)

    I use it with my MacBook Air and MacBook Pro.

    All (modern) Apple's devices can be used anywhere on any (common) power grid in the world.

    you answered your own question with this line
    the US is 120v 60Hz

    if a device says that it will work anywhere in the world, you will only need a "dumb" adapter to make the prongs fit. pretty much all modern electronics are like that, like cell phone chargers.

    if you don't want the adapter sitting on your desk, you can get a new cable, might even be cheaper than an adapter, looks like the new imac uses a standard IEC cable, which you can get on amazon for about $1 and probably a few dollars more at any electronics store, or probably several dollars more at an apple store. check to make sure it will fit before purchasing as i'm not 100% sure this is the right cable.

    ...that, or you spend $4.50 to get the proper Apple power cord.
