I hope I have posted this in the right forum. I live in Australia and will be visiting Hawaii next month. I was hoping to purchase a MacBook Pro while there. Does anyone know if this is possible. Will it work in Australia and will it be easy to change the plug to fit Australian power outlets. Is it possible to contact the Apple store in Hawaii by email? Do I need to order in advance or should I be able to buy one off the shelf. Any help will be most appreciated.

The power supply that connects the MacBook Pro to the electrical wall outlet will have to be changed. You can buy the Mac off the shelf. No advance order necessary

Check the apple store URL for any email addresses. There is more than one store in Hawaii.

The MacBook Pro you purchase in Hawaii will work fine in Australia. Just ask the sales person for an international power adapter kit at the time of purchase. (extra cost) It comes with various plug adapters so that your new MBP can be used in Australia, Europe, and many other places around the world. The machine is designed to operate off AC main power from around 110V, 50 or 60 Hz to 240V, 50 or 60 Hz.

It is only the 3 pin plug 2 pin plug requirement that is different and you will find them on ebay but be aware that some of the adaptors like this have a figure 8 shape while some are B shaped; if the power adaptor needs figure 8 shape and u buy B shaped it wont go in.
