Default Is Bluetooth standard in Mini9 ?? - 05-15-2009, 02:57 PM

Is BT standard in the Mini9?

If not, is it hard to install an aftermarket bt device?

And, which BT brand is recommended?

If you're buying new from Dell, you can customize to have the internal BT installed...buying from the outlet or ebay, it isn't always apparent whether there is an internal BT module or not.

If you end up getting a Mini with no BT installed, it is relatively easy to install, but you will have to disassemble part of your Mini to install it. Your best bet would be to order the module directly from Dell, via email or chat, since they don't sell it on their website. There is a good step-by-step instruction HERE on how to go about doing it.

$20 from Dell. You have to take the palm rest off. Fairly easy to install if you follow the service manual. Just take your time, be patient with it. It sometimes fights a little bit.
