Is there any legal or technical reason to stop me from buying software in the U.S. when I am there next month and installing it on my UK based iMac?

For example, Aperture for $299+tax (£150 ish) rather than £219 or MS Office

Nah, luckily MacOSX is completely unified. I bought mine in Taiwan and I'm bringing it home with me. (OK, so the manual is in Chinese - but who reads that anyway....) :p

OK cool, I assume from your comment this is not the same with Windows/Vista? I was hoping to do this same for my missus Vista Machine.

Not completely sure about Windows.... from what I remember last time I installed a Windows machine as long as its in English it doesn't matter but they make CD's for each language/country the OS is released in... so if I buy Windows here, it's in Chinese and I can't change it.

Whereas MacOS CD's are all identical the world over and you just select which language you want to use when you install it and still change it afterwards if you want to.... Nice and simple. :p
