I am reading alot about bluetooth not being standard on rev b powerbooks. I have bluetooth on my rev b powerbook 12" 1 Ghz and I didn't add it to the powerbook. Then I talked to DMB and he said that apple could of made a mistake. Right after that my friend signed on and I asked him since he had a rev b powerbook(now has rev c. don't ask long story) and he got bluetooth standard on his rev b as well. Could apple earlier had bluetooth as a bto option early in the rev b then added bluetooth a standard later or was it always standard?

bluetooth has always been standard on Al powerbooks...

next time you have a question such as this why don't you do a little research...

You might be confused with the first G4 TiPB 15" model run. If so, then no integrated BT on revs: a, b, c or d!

History of G4 TiPBs:
400/500 Ti - no integrated BT
550/667 Ti - no integrated BT
667/800 Ti - no integrated BT
867/1GHz Ti - no integrated BT
... although you could buy USB BT adapters for them I think, but they protruded from the casing.

Integrated BT was, however, introduced with the 12" and 17" Al models as Paul pointed out and has been on every AlPB model since.

Hope this helped.

Btw ut do download mactracker - it's one of my favourite apps... and you'll learn so much about the history and specifications on pretty much all Apple products that run on a Mac OS!
