Hi. I live in the UK and am planning on buying a 12' superdrive g4 powerbook over in the usa as I am doing business over there. I was wondering When I return to UK if I would be able to still use UK software and hardware etc. Are there any options I can change to change the region settings for the whole laptop of the dvd player part?

Thanks.

Yeah I don't believe there are any differences with the laptop itself or the operating system. For the DVD region settings.. when I was overseas.. all I did was stick in a DVD and it changed the settings automatically for me, BUT you can only do it a couple times before you can't do it anymore.. so I wouldnt switch back and forth too often

I have no idea why they limit the amount of region changes, but they do.

Cheers!
