If you want to use a Dell, I would advise to pick one from the "Business" line of products (Lattitude), instead of the "End-User" line (Precision).
Vostro, Latitude and Precision are the business line laptops (in increasing order of build quality / reliability). Inspiron, XPS and Alienware are the end-user / domestic lines (again in increasing order of build quality).
The UK isn't 240V, it is 230V. As previous commenters have stated, the tolerances are different in the UK and the EU, but they are all based around 230V now.
