If I was to buy a macbook in the united states will it work with dvd's and if I burn dvd's with it in the Uk. Also will the warranty work over in the UK? Is it easy to change the power supply plug? Will any ram upgrades etc work if they are UK parts? Will all the software and stuff work with it.

Sorry for asking so many questions etc but I am scared of buying one in the US and it not working im a bit paranoid etc lol. Thank you very much for any help you can give me :)

Cheers

Yes to all. The DVD drive will let you choose the region, dvds burnt will work as normal, warranty is worldwide, power supply plus is VERY easy to change, RAM upgrades etc will be fine, and software of course will too. Its only the US keyboard which will be different.

But can't you change the region of the DVD drive only a few times until the setting becomes permanent? I have the same problem but the other way round (Europe --> USA).

You can change the region 5 times. You may find that VLC is able to play discs from all regions without changing the region on the drive.
