Keyboard will be a US keybord not a UK one.
Software will be US versions not UK
Laptop will not be supported in UK if it goes wrong
Mains plug will be different
Customs will clobber you if you are caught bringing it back

lol, postive comment. Something tells me you dont like the US.
Customs wouldnt know. Secondly, you could always buy a crap one and take that out there with you, and just leave there and return with new one.

why would you wanna buy a crap one and spend money on it to leave it there might as well put that money to the money you was gonna spend in america and buy one here lot less hassle and the first post is right

What guibert53 is saying is VERY valid. The customs issue is easy to sort, but the power supply and keyboard layout is not so simple.

Look at the prices on dell.com or pcworld.com or usanotebooks.com or gateway.com/

Make your own mind up if you want a USA layout keyboard and if the exchange rate is ok, then do it..personally I would not bother. I bought just a USA keyboard wireless from USA, I didn't realise how useless they are!

Good luck
