I saw this over on MacNN and thought it was worth mentioning here.

While the new PM's may be "Bluetooth Ready", in order to take advantage of this readiness you have to buy it from the Apple Store and select bluetooth as an option. The bluetooth module is not an aftermarket upgrade. If you buy it from another vendor your PM is as "Bluetooth Ready" as any computer with a USB port.

I am upset that I bought mine from MacMall since the eventuality of getting a Bluetooth keyboard was a big selling point for me and I liked the idea of not having something else plugged into the outside of my computer (i.e. a USB Bluetooth adapter).
