Default Laptop language limitations

hey...

I was just wondering - what would be my limitations if I would get myself a foreign-language notebook... I have an option to get one but its "French", and I want to know what are the downsides of such deal, except for different keyboard layouts, and different Windows version installed by default. Someone told me, that I would not be able to install a new English version of Windows, or will have problems installing English software.. anyone has a clue? Thanks a lot

Thumbs up

hey this is all the misinformation you are getting
nothings gonna happen to computer if you install the english version of windows in the computer of french origin if it is having some problem then you can format the hard drive

and besides only limitation possible is the keyboard keys printed in french
now that can also be resolved by just fitting a skin of keys printed in english (it might be hard to get although )

otherwise go ahead and purchase the computer right away
