A 13-inch MacBook Pro costs £999 in the UK, compared to $1,199 (about £760) in the US.
For this reason (I guess), brand new US models cost about £850 on UK eBay. The obvious downside is the keyboard layout is US, not UK.
Only a couple of keys are different on US keyboards. So if it's possible to change system preferences to interpret it as a British-layout keyboard, then I'm happy to put up with a couple of wrongly labelled keys, if it saves me £150.
But are there any other downsides I should bare in mind? Any possible incompatibilities etc?
