    PCMCIA is just a standard ;) it will work if its supported by apple, but when it's NOT noted on the box there is a very low chance THAT the card will work on your apple... apple is picky on hardware... that's the anti-mac argument my pc firends keep on telling me... but I don't care :D

    :edit: you'll need a PB 15" or 17" to HAVE a pcmcia slot in there :edit:

    maybe the easier option is: getting a EDGE/GPRS mobile with BlueTooth... buy a BT dongle if your mac hasn't BT built-in... and use it like that... because well I suppose it's possible to use it that way ;) but not really sure right now... do some more searching and I'll guess you'll find a slution that'll work (maybe not as ideal as such acard... but hey... BT isn't that bad as alternative :p ok you need a new mobile I guess etc... but imagine buying the card... and find out you'll have to bring it back to the shop or eBay it...

    By the way which would you recommend EDGE or UTMS?
