On there, it talks of drivers for all versions of windows, can anybody tell me what the score is when it comes to compatability with mac, is it likely to work, or do we just not know?

I have a Belkin bluetooth dongle I use with my iMac that works just by plugging it into a USB slot. It even works if I plug it into my USB Hub.

Looking for a PowerMac G4 for $500 or less USD.
