   Sorry to post an off-topic one, but you guys
   should know the answer to the following
   question (there is nothing at that
   says for example!):-

   Are Sun power-supplies dual-voltage?  i.e can
   you run a US spec system on a UK supply?

   Sparcs are dirt cheap in the US and I don't
   wish to spend too much cash on one.  It'll
   be running NetBSD of course (probably on a
   Sparc-4/5 depending on costs...).  I'm just
   fed up with PC reliability if you know what
   I mean...


   - Chris.

   PS - Please can you forward all replies to me
   as I'm not on the list (yet!).

Although it might be model dependent, a particular power supply that I use
in an IPC here [Power supply model: APS-02, Part Number: 300-1055-05.  Its
actually a Sony power supply] has the following written on it:


AC 100-120V 4.6A
AC 200-240V 2.5A

I am pretty sure that I have seen Sun power supplies also advertise
themselves as being able to do: 90-250V 47-63MHZ, but my memory is fuzzy
on this point.

You will need the correct power cord, of course...
