Best way of changing voltage for PSU

I am planning on getting a XPS 8700 that I am going to take with me to Korea in a few months. The problem is, the PSU seems to not have a voltage switch on it. Is it a internal switch that is activated automatically or do I have to use a transformer? If I do have to use a transformer, what would be the best?

Most modern supplies without a switch are designed to work from around 100 to 240 volts with no switching required to allow it to cover the various power connections in different countries.

The XPS 870 is designed to work form 100 - 240 Volts and with 50 or 60Hz.

You may need to get either a power cable or plug adapter for the Korean system.
I am not familiar with their outlets.

The computer end will be the same, it's just the part that plugs into the wall that might be different. The OP can probably pick up a cable at a local shop when in Korea.

They use the Schuko plug which is used in Europe so I may be able to get a European plug.

There are plug adapters. But I'm not sure if there are ones that are grounded.

I would use this instead:

Using a real cord is always safer then using an adapter.
