Would you PM me the name? I'm in the same boat, as I didn't BTO mine.ja0912 said:I bought the internal module online from a small mac retailer for $59. Came with the screws and the little antenna you plug in the back.
I didn't mention the name of the company (just search around) because I'm pretty sure Apple doesn't allow this. It states clearly on the small retailers site that it must be installed by an Authorized Technician, but it was painfully easy to do myself.
You are correct. Bluetooth is not an option that can be added by the user after the fact, at least not internally. He could get a Bluetooth dongle (USB) or something like that, though.tobefirst said:I'm almost positive you have to have the bluetooth installed when you buy the computer. Otherwise you'll have to use a USB dongle. Officially, Apple only supports the D-Link model, although plenty of brands will "work."
I don't see why not. It would unscrew with two screws, and then you just detach the little antenna wire.Blackheart said:Do you guys know if you can BTO a new powermac with bluetooth, uninstall it and put it into another powermac? I'm curious because I might try and talk my boss into letting me add bluetooth to one on the next purchases and just pay the additional cost.
at least not internally...with Apple's consent.Kerry Sanders said:You are correct. Bluetooth is not an option that can be added by the user after the fact, at least not internally.
Yea, after posting, I read the rest of the thread and realized that I should have probably read the entire thread before responding.ja0912 said:at least not internally...with Apple's consent.
If you can get your hands on an internal module, it's basically as easy as adding ram.
Are you serious? Because if you are... looks like I'll be spending $50.powerboy said:I was at an Apple Store today and they said they would install bluetooth for $50 (includes installation). They said I just needed to bring my Powermac in and leave it for about a day.
