    Based on the spec sheet, your power requirements are 364.7 watts max. / 100-240V ~7A

    (50/60Hz), which should cover you in Australia.  But then again, your milage may vary.

    Hello aquaslav,

    Greetings and welcome.
    Does the power supply have a 120/240 switch on the back where the power cord plugs in?

    Thank you gentlemen (Nite Hawk, Joe). I opened the back of the computer and took a closer look at the power supply, and sure enough, it says 100-240 volts. The misleading info was on the packing case which simply said 100-120 v. You have a great forum and I will be back later with queries on some other equipment that I have. Hpapy New Year - Aquaslav
