    Yes, if you go BTO definantly get Bluetooth, you don't need to get the mouse keyboard right away, you can always get it later but definantly get Bluetooth, it's like the cheapest option avaialble. It keeps your possibilities open in the future for your Mac!

    I didn't do use the Bluetooth BTO option, because it's quite expensive compared to a little BT 2 Dongle you can get for half the money...

    I highly recommend the internal BlueTooth module (whether or not you get the wireless mouse/keyboard). It is slightly more expensive than an add-on USB dongle, but it's MUCH MUCH more convenient. I use my internal BlueTooth with a cell phone, as well as for easy computer to computer file transfers.

    bluetooth is one of those things that you think you won't be too moved by untill you use it. Also, why spoil the aesthetics of a mac (and loose a usb port) by wacking a bluetooth dongle thingy on the side!

    I would recommend it, if you decide you want a bluetooth get the internal one. I have used the external ones and have had some problems with it. I dont use bluetooth keyboard or mouse but just bec i bluetooth mouses are a bit slower then normals ones and that extra speed helps me for WoW :)
