    Only been a mac user since sunday so I don't know if this is possible. But I know the iMac has bluetooth. If this is possible.

    I got the HP printer that came with the iMac for the full rebate


    Thanks a lot!

    Does the printer have a bluetooth adapter? Because it should be possible--turn on bluetooth and pair the devices.

    Sorry..let me clarify.. I don't believe it has blue tooth. I would need a blue tooth adapter. I'm asking if this would work? If they make it, how much? and which kind?

    You would need something on the lines of this and this to a non Bluetooth Printer to turn it into Bluetooth Printer...

    I don't think that will work. A bluetooth dongle is for plugging into a computer. A normal printer just isn't smart enough to drive it.

    If the HP printer mentions Bluetooth then you may be able to buy an adapter for it. Otherwise you need a full kit like http://www.iogear.com/product/GBP302KIT/
