    Hello there PPC forum!

    I just got my hands on a 1.8GHz iMac G5 for the price of FREE thanks to the generosity of a local business. It is seriously an awesome machine. The only "problem" is that it doesn't have blue tooth or airport. Is the card(s) in the 17" iMac G5 1.9GHz(with iSight) compatible with the 1.8GHz and is it fairly simple to do as long as I have the right tools? Thanks in advance for any advice or help!

    The AirPort card is; the 1.8GHz G5 uses the standard AirPort Extreme card, and that machine is amazingly simple to get into. As for the Bluetooth, I'm afraid not.

    Thank you very much for your response! That's too bad about the BT card, but hey that means that I can take stuff out of my failing 17" and then make some modifications later. Thanks again!
