    Re: Bluetooth

    They do exist, but the only place I've found them after a 10 minute search is eBay, search for a "bluetooth express card".

    EDIT: You may find better luck fitting a bluetooth adaptor internally, many laptops have an internal fitting for a bluetooth device, for example my Acer 5051. I know this is also common practice with Dell, all three of the Dell notebooks I've owned have an internal bluetooth header but no device on the end of it, Dell bluetooth modules are everywhere (especially on eBay) and can be bought for less than £10.

    Re: Bluetooth

    Yes that does look quite small. That is why I was thunking of the Express card as I assumed, maybe incorrectly, that it wouldn't stick out as far as a USB dongle. Ideally I would prefer to get the manufacturers internal card, Fujitsu, but that will be considerably more I would reckon.

    Thanks lads for taking the time to reply
