You can't get internal Bluetooth installed in a Mac after you purchase it, however there are alternatives. Check this USB adapter out.

Go on the Apple Store, buy the D-Link Bluetooth Adapter.

Its the only USB adapter supported by Mac OS and the Apple BT KB and Mouse.

Other aftermarket adapters do not work. :)

Apple recommend and sell a little D-Link USB Bluetooth adapter for the aftermarket. They can't sell the internal units separately, because then end users would be exposed to unshielded evil.

Haha....unshielded evil. That just made me laugh out loud.

Thank you, iMeowbot.

That's not entirely true. I have had a generic bluetooth adapter on my Power Mac at home since I got the machine and on my iMac before that. It works with the Apple BT keyboard and mouse (and later a Logitech BT mouse) just fine.

One thing it will not do, however, is allow the keyboard or mouse to wake the computer from sleep.

I use a Belkin USB adapter myself – I've not encountered any problems using it rather than the D-Link. I'm very happily typing away on my Apple Bluetooth keyboard with it now, as it happens. :)

EDIT: tobefirst is right about the sleep thing, mind. ;)
