    Hey!

    I'll be moving to Tokyo in about a week to attend college. Since I don't have a lot of money (and thus cannot just buy a new MBP), I'll need to take my 2.1Ghz 20" iMac G5 with me. Will I need to get a new cord or any sort of power adapter/transformer/etc to make it work, or can I just grab a three-prong-to-two-prong adapter and use it like normal?


    Thanks!

    Hey iindigo! I didn't realize you were on these forums ;)

    Japan is rated at 100V, so just check the label on your power brick. The physical plug is the same.

    iMac's don't have a power brick either.

    Haha, yep. Been here for about seven years now... haven't posted as much as you, though.


    It would appear that it should work fine, then. The only concern that I might run into is that some buildings use ungrounded two-prong sockets only (iMac plug is three-prong), but that's nothing a cheap adapter won't fix.
