Hello,
I could really do with some expert advice on this subject, I want to purchase a laptop in the U.K. and then use it in my home in Turkey, can anyone tell me what the difficulties or any connection problems I would have by doing this. I am not a computer expert at all so would someone with some knowledge please help.

I want to purchase a laptop in the U.K. to use in Turkey, I know there is a difference in voltage and it is lower than the U.K. in Turkey but can someone tell me would there be also components problems, with buying a laptop are the configurations of the components only for U.K. use only and finally what type of internet would I require can I use my current account package in the U.K. in Turkey.

I´m not a computer expert either (!) but I use a Dell Inspiron 6400 bought in the UK before I came to live in Turkey nearly 2 years ago and I have had no problems at all.  Nothing has had to be changed except configuring my keyboard for Turkish characters - which is dead simple.

 

Of course, you will need to get an internet package over here - mine is through Turk Telecom but I think there are other choices - there are internet shops all over the place where you can enquire about this.

What lady in red said. I used a Sony Vaio from the U.S. for over a year in Turkey with no problems whatever. I needed only a plug adaptor for the charger. Rather than reconfigure the keyboard, however, I bought a Turkish keyboard and plugged it in to a USB port.
