I'm seriously considering purchasing a Lenovo IdeaPad Y510 (59013779) notebook. I am moving from the United States to Australia as an international graduate student. I was planning on simply buying an international cord, the bit that goes from the wall to the powerbrick; so I could simply plug the notebook in without the hassle of using/lugging a converter around.
I just checked Cnet Reviews for the voltage/power specs as they do not seem to be listed at the Lenovo website. According to Cnet, the power brick works with voltages ranging from: AC 120/230v. Voltage in Australia is 240v, yet the Y510 is available in Australia. Why the discrepancy?
I do not want to fry the motherboard =)
Any sound advice?

I would recommend buying a universal travel plug adapter after you arrive in Europe. They usually cost around $10-20. Beware that a plug adapter does not change voltages.
