    I just recently purchased a new MacPro 2x2.66GHz model 1,1.
    Picked it up for about $1k, which I thought was a pretty good deal. Anyway, I've already installed an Airport card (fun stuff) and received a bluetooth card from eBay that I'm slightly hesitant to install. The module was wrapped in bubble wrap inside of an anti-static bag... had lint stuck to the sides... and looks like it's seen happier days. The best part: it arrived postage due!

    Doesn't the bubble wrap directly on the chip defeat the purpose of the anti-static bag? Is there any risk of harming my computer if I install this poorly shipped module?

    There is a great set of instructions on installing the chip here.

    Definitely.

    Yes it does. I don't recommend leaving positive feedback.

    Not that I know of, but you might want to wait for a second opinion. As far as I know, the worst-case scenario is that the part simply doesn't work.
