Has anyone bought a laptop from Japan, can it be used in Singapore?
Saw in Sony Vaio Japan website, lots of nice laptops with equally attractive prices.

not really. I remember the small pocket viao in Japan is around 50% the price of singapore. Seriously. Was really tempted to buy but not too sure of singapore pricing at that time. The Sony Japan as some very cheap barebones Viao which is not available in singapore.

adaptors for laptops are normally shipped for the international voltage and shouldn't be a problem.

japanese keyboard is fine, using one now. not a prob at all once you are used to it. I find it easier to use then the international version.

Really? Absolutely cannot stand the tiny space bar... more people I know hates it as well, since you can type japanese easily on a normal US keyboard.

No, it is easier to type Japanese on a Japanese keyboard because the Japanese keyboard has the essential keys for you to interchange input method and changing from kana to kanji.

Typing Japanese using English keyboard sucks. If you are using English OS to type Japanese, that will be even worse!
