Hi there. I’ve just joined, and hope someone might be able to help please.

 

I am in the UK. I have just taken delivery of 2 Mac Minis (due to major miscommunication between me and my husband!). I got mine from the UK Apple Store; John shopped around online and bought his from an electronics website. Only after the order had been placed did John realise that the website was Hong Kong-based.

 

Comparing the boxes’ labels, I can see that on the box the product name of my (UK) Mac Mini contains the letters BT-GBR (and my Apple order mentions a Country Kit GBR), whereas the Hong Kong-sourced product name says BT-ITP (I have no order breakdown). 

 

 

Their Part Nos. are as follows:

UK MC815B/A

HK MC815ZP/A

 

My question is: will the Hong Kong one be OK to use in the UK?

 

With thanks in anticipation

Sally

Sally, I guess it will only differ in the power cord supplied in the box - and you can get a UK one cheaply (or an adapter) from eBay.

(BTW: I would remove those two serial numbers from your post, though.)

 

 

Not sure what you've done about keyboards though - which are, of course, not supplied with the minis. 

A UK (GBR) keyboard will have both "£" and "$" signs etc, the international one (ITP) will probably have "$" only...

    Thanks for that. I already have a UK keyboard which I use with an eMac.
