Hi everyone,

I'm in the process of purchasing a used 12" ibook G4. My question is this: I am going to europe for a year and I need to know if I will be able to use the ibook over there. Is there a power converter Mac sells? I have heard horror stories of people using converters in europe and frying their computers because of the high voltage...this is a very important issue for me, and if anyone has any information they could share, it would be greatly appreciated!!

As far as I know, the powersupplys of recent Macs should be compliant to both, US and European voltage.
Check what's written on the supply, if it says 100-240V, it will work without the need of any converter. You just need an European plug (which you can get there for a couple of Euros).

Thanks for your help...I'm getting the ibook early next week and I'm really excited (used macs when I was younger but have been using pc's for a few years). The power conversion was a major issue for me but I know now that it will not be a problem...thanks again!
