    PowerMac does not come with Airport & Bluetooth. There is a $99 BTO for that. However, selecting the wireless keyboard/mouse package will come with "integrated wireless support".

    Does anyone know if this includes the Airport card?

    Thanks.

    The answer is in the wireless options description of BTO.

    The wireless keyboard and mouse package comes with bluetooth, not airport.

    so if you want airport you have to select the "airport and bluetooth option"

    I would think that Airport and Bluetooth would be bundled with system, especially since it is a "PRO Model"

    Not until someone else brought it up, I thought they are included. Isn't all Mac (Mini may be exception) have them integrated?

    That is true, I even think the Mac Mini's even have it intergrated. For me I selected both, the AirPort and Bluetooth & Bluetooth Mouse and Keyboard..one thing that was interesting is that if you select the wireless keyboard and mouse from an iMac which has bluetooth intergrated...its the same price as the Power Mac option.
