Does the FMV LIFEBOOK AH90/B1 FMVA90B1 work with a usa plug in outlet?
Hello I purchased this laptop FMV LIFEBOOK AH90/B1 FMVA90B1 on a Japanese proxy site and need to know if it will work with a standard united States outlet? I read that Japanese electronics work on a different voltage. So I am worried I won't be able to use it and it was $1300!!
Also does this have an English keyboard? If someone could answer these questions for me. Thanks

I don't know about the keyboard.
The power supply/charger is most likely a universal type
that will operate on any common voltage or frequency
available from any household outlet in the world.
(Plug adapters cost very little, typically $3 to $5 at the most.)
Look at the ratings on the charger.
(Yes, the print is small. Use a magnifier.)
If it says "100 - 240 V 50 - 60 Hz", you're good to go.
Some have a wider frequency range such as 47 to 63 Hz,
or even 25 to 400 Hz. The wider the range,
the less there is to be concerned about.
Do yourself a favour while you can:
Write down the part number and the output ratings (voltage and current)*
and keep the note where you Can Not lose it.
That way, if the charger is ever lost,
finding a replacement should be easier.
*Many are 19 or 19.5 volts, but this value does vary,
and the current might be anything between 750 mA and 6 A.
As long as the replacement delivers the same nominal voltage (+/- 1)
and at least as much current as the original, it should work.
