    I have an 867 Ti Powerbook, with no internal bluetooth. I want to replicate internal BT as much as possible (no dongle).

    I know there is the 3com PCMCIA card for bluetooth 1.1, but it is now discontinued and hard to find.

    Are there any other PC card type things that work with a mac? I would love 2.0 if possible, but I am willing to take almost anything.

    Anyone? Surely not everyone has an internal bluetooth enabled laptop.

    fig tree
    do you have anything against a usb adapter? your usb 1.1 ports wouldnt hinder the speed since even bt2 is significantly slower than usb 1.1. a lot of adapters fold 90 degrees so they dont stick out. as far as pc cards go, belkin makes one, but im not sure of mac compatibility. it'd be nice of some company would make a combo airport/bluetooth card for an airport extreme slot (i know this wouldnt be helpful to your tibook :eek: but it'd still be cool)
