Hi everyone,

I will be shortly travelling to France with my US laptop (Toshiba). My AC adaptor has the following specifications:
Input 100-240V
50-60HZ

Therefore, it seems I should not need to buy a special adaptor/transformer but just a 'plug converter'beetween US plud and France plugs? Am I right? Last thing I want is burn my lap top there!!!!!

Anyone used a US laptop in Europe/France?

Thank you!

Just a adapter for the plug. There is "multiplugs" to use all over the world.

Regards

I travel with my US laptop all over Europe and to Russia. You are quite right - all you need is a flat/round plug adapter. Actually, I'm sitting here in St. Petersburg, Russia, at my Dell bought in Houston and using it to write this post this very minute. Guaranteed:-)

Sorry, made too many typos.
