what to configure for foreign travel
Since I have a Toshiba laptop configured for the US, I was wondering what I have to do... if I bring it to possibly England and for sure Spain? I sure hate like hell to ruin a perfectly good laptop.
I know Reverend has a laptop, but modesty stops me from directly pm'ing him.

I presume you mean the different voltages used in Europe.
I don't know what Toshiba Model you've got,but if it uses a similar Power Adaptor to mine you won't need to use a Voltage converter/transformer because it has a range of 100-240v and auto adjusts.
The only thing you'll need is a plug adaptor that will allow an appliance from one country to be plugged into the wall socket of another country.
But check in your manual,or visit the Toshiba site just to make sure.

now to get the equipment needed- from european size plugs to european w-11 telephone jacks, if there is something like that.
