I searched and searched, couldn't find this:

The 700MHZ iMac G4....Max RAM, 1GB, or can it acknowledge 2GB?

Also, is there any wy to put bluetooth into this unit without using a USB dongle? Meaning, is there a bluetooth/wifi card for this?
QUOTE Thanks

The model is now eleven years old and an Airport card will work. 1GB as Nick says is tops and USB Bluetooth dongles only just work.

Memory for Apple iMac G4 700MHz and 800MHz models

Airport card for this model are 802.11g only:-

D-Link dongles were recommended for Macs:-

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
