    Okay, this may be obvious but, if you are overseas (Hong Kong) and on 240v power, can you still run standard USB hard drives, ipod chargers, etc? I got asked that question recently and I had never really thought about it. Thanks

    Yes you can. All apple chargers are ok from 110v all the way up to 240v

    Yes, you can, as the MacBook (Pro) power adapter has a built in power converter.
    I use 220/230V and 50Hz here in Europe and I am fine with my bus powered peripherals (USB and Firewire).
