Hi! I can buy a Macbook from a friend of mine. However, the macbook is a french version! Software manuals etc are all french. All I want to know is, if I purchase mac os x (english version) will I be able to use the macbook as a regular macbook? I would be ssaving a bundle from buying a brand new one.
