i have just read this on apple website and am confused as to wether bluetooth is a short range alternative for airport. if so would i need anything like a base station to make this work?? i realise i am thick and apologise in advance for inducing you to read this long thread. cheers "Sync with Bluetooth Bluetooth is built-in to the new 17-inch PowerBook G4 model. Like AirPort Extreme, Bluetooth connects digital devices wirelessly. Operating within a much shorter range than AirPort, it enables high-speed wireless data transfers between a rapidly growing list of Bluetooth-savvy products. Using iSync, for instance, you can use Bluetooth to synchronize your personal information between your PowerBook, your mobile phone and your Palm OS-based handheld. And Bluetooth lets you take advantage of GPRS connectivity to check your email from anywhere - a benefit that comes in handy on those occasions when a 802.11 wireless hotspot isn't available."
