    Dear All,
    Again, I must ask you to help. I know the Dell 700m Inspiron does not have built-in bluetooth. I need the card, right? Will a IBM card work in a Dell? Is there a infra- red card?

    Thanks for your help.
    Sincerely,
    macmac

    A. What is your end result (Trying to connect to a modem, trying to sync with PDA, etc.?).

    B. Just about any BlueTooth adapter will work in any laptop...usually. Sometimes you will have quirks...I use an Anycom USB adapter. It works perfectly fine in my Sony v505 and Fujitsu P7010. With other machines, it requires ALOT of tweaking.

    C. If you don't use USB much, I'd go with a USB adapter. If you don't like things sticking out of the side of your computer, you could also look at a CompactFlash or PCMCIA model.

    Whatever you do, stay away from Anycom...nothing but problems!!
