    I just got myself a Daul 2.7 G5 and it doesn't have a 56k modem inside of her. I know some of you are already laughing, but hey, I live in the middle of nowhere, I'm stuck with dialup for at least another 6 months. So what are my options for getting a new one? I saw there is an external one at the apple store for $49. I'd love to keep the clutter to a minimum, so any ideas on internal ones and if it's gonna be hard to put in myself? I know the one I got for my G4 was super easy...

    apparently the internal modem was a bto option and apparently yours didn't have it. according to the article, however, you can find 'em on ebay

    edit: if you can afford it you might look into satellite broadband. it's a bit more expensive than cable or dsl iirc, but i have a friend who lives in the middle of nowhere and uses satellite and is pretty satisfied--he can even game on it.
