Hi Everyone! This is my first time posting here....I have finally decided to make to change to a Mac I'm looking at the 15" MBP and hope to buy as soon as they update, whenever that is..... Anyway my question is this, I'm from Europe (Ireland) but have a friend living in the US for a short period of time. He has offered to buy the MBP for me (which will save me 300-400 euro). Also due to the nature of his job he can get it tax free which will save me even more. Will I run into any problems using the US MBP in Europe? For example - Will the DVD player only play region 1 DVD's? Can it be changed? - Will I have issues with power supply? I know I can buy a cheap adapter but will the amount of current goin into the plug matter? - Is the keyboard layout different? - When my friend buys it will he have to register it in his name, address etc? I plan to buy Applecare from amazon or ebay. Will I have any problems if I need the MBP repaired? If I have overlooked any potential issues I would be grateful I you could point them out to me as I really am a Mac noob. Thanks in advance for the replies, help and time taken to read this. kevzy.
