    So I just got a new wireless mouse today from Amazon and I'm afraid I'm going to have to return it. By the image I attached from my system prefs it looks like I dont have Bluetooth capabilities do i? I have a powermac g5 tower. I guess I just assumed I had it built in...

    Yep, you don't have Bluetooth. Pretty sure it was optional on PowerMacs...

    Well that stinks. Is it something I can purchase and install myself? How much would something like this cost me?

    Any bog-standard USB adaptor should work. Cheap on eBay. If you want the proper Apple internal module, no idea...
