    If I buy a mini from the UK

    Will it work in the US if I replace the UK power cord with a US one,
    or is the unit itself different?

    Thanks

    Should work - I don't see why not...

    You may have to change the OS from UK English to US English... :p

    We speak English really good....

    when i navigate to the support specs for late 06 mini from us or uk apple site, they both lead to the same spec page

    http://support.apple.com/specs/macmini/Mac_mini_Late_2006.html

    Line voltage: 100-240V AC

    I'm hoping the only difference is the power cord

    I read that the power supply is in a separate unit like a laptop power supply
    what I'm referring to as a cord

    yeah, should work fine. just make sure that you change the power supply, and you may need to change the dvd player region. aside from that, you're good to go.

    It's an expensive way to buy a mini if you are from the US.

    The basic model in the UK is £399 / $798 which works out to the same as the SuperDrive model in the US!

    The top mini is a whopping £529 / $1058 in the UK :mad:

    It was on eBay.
    It's already shooting up in price though.

    Thanks for the input everyone!

    Defiantly works, all mac units are the same the only difference is in the power supply brick that comes with the computer, make sure you get the local power adapter or the travel kit and you will have no problems! :D
