    Do the new macbook pros automatically detect a voltage difference or do I need to purchase a voltage converter?

    I'm in the states, I believe that is a 120v, 60Hz system and I'm moving to a 230v, 50Hz country. I will be purchasing the world traveler adapter kit from Apple, but I am worried about the differences in electricity.

    I will be using my computer for the remainder of its life in a 230v country, would this have any negative consequences, or are Apple's built to support both a 120 and 230v system?

    Will Hz or watts make a difference?

    The power adapters can handle pretty much any mains power feed.
    110 - 240v and 50/60Hz

    Most of the Power Adapters are rated at 100v-240V and 50/60Hz. So no, I doubt you'd have any problems.
