Ask the MACist
Welcome to the latest edition of Ask the MACist, the column where I answer your Mac and Mac-related questions with hopefully more clarity and insight than you could ever need. As always, I want to thank those of you who sent in questions this week. They are much appreciated. Keep it up!
And remember, if you have a question about anything Mac, Mac-related, or even something about another technology like TiVo, cell phones or whatever, send it to me, The MACist, at: themacist at gmail dot com. Ok, let's get to it.
This one comes from Vanessa in Los Angeles. She asks "I'm curious (read: anxious) to know if I can bring my Powerbook G4 with me when I move to New Zealand, or if it would be smarter to sell this one and purchase a new one upon arrival."
Well Vanessa, you're in luck because the Powerbook is a special computer (much like all of Apple's recent laptops) in that it can use voltages from all different parts of the world -- including the 230/240 used in New Zealand. So, you won't need to worry about any kind of power converter, at least for your Powerbook. You will, however, need a plug adaptor as New Zealand uses a flat type two or three prong connector much like many other non-North American countries.
