Maybe not a problem, at least for a notebook.  My work provided Dell 
Latitude has a PSU that accepts 100 to 240 volts 50/60Hz.  It has a UK 
plug but it would work abroad.  Surely it would be the same for a 
notebook bought in the states, makes sense to have a portable machine 
that can be used world wide.  I wouldn't be able to put up with the US 
keyboard though.
