ok, i seem to have been made aware of this little SNAFU..
here is my sage advice (assuming it is only the power cord that won't mate up with the UK socket) just pop down to the high street and the local, have a beer, relax and enjoy the ambiance of a welcoming pub, THEN hop on over to the radio shack (or similar shop) and lay out one pound sterling for an appropriate cord that will fit the wall socket AND the standard lenovo power supply and chalk it up to a senior moment..
all should know that a big outfit like IBM and now lenovo have to work within some guidelines even if those guidelines are really dumb..
(just take a look at the US Govt. since 2009, guidelines with the force of LAW, up the wazoo)
FWIW i get to use "senior moment" a LOT these days and it WORKS..
and NO, mr. ninja, I can but i don't want to because you look to be an asset to this forum..
if you insist, i will, but that would leave this instructive thread without an author..
finally "goodnight mrs. calabash whereEVER you are"..
