    adding bluetooth to a G4 tower
    I"m getting a G4 tower as a back up mac and it does not have bluetooth. The only keyboard I have is the wireless keyboard connected to my macbook. How can I add bluetooth to the G4 so I can use the wireless keyboard with it?

    If it is a FW800 model only, then you can fit an Apple Bluetooth Card as there is provision for that on the logic board.

    For other models you need a D-Link USB Dongle model 120 or 122. Keep your wired keyboard and mouse as you will need those to set up the wireless, and for use with Apple Hardware Test etc.

    I would go the easy route and find a Bluetooth USB Adapter. They usually cost between $25-$35.
