    I believe barto is correct about the future of the iMac. Those specs on looprumors are indeed wrong. The iMac is going to get a better upgrade than that.

    Yes. I agree. Could someone outline the advantages of bluetooth on an imac and its possible uses. thanks.</strong><hr></blockquote>

    Bluetooth is to USB what Airport is to wired ethernet. Standardized wireless peripheral connectivity.

    One example:

    I enjoy my wireless Logitech keyboard and mouse. But I dislike the rather bulky reciever box that is still connected by wires. And this reciever's only purpose is to connect to my keyboard/mouse. It can't connect to printers, phones, PDAs and any other device you can imagine using wirelessly thus all of these devices would have to have their own reciever box connected to your computer due to the lack of a standard.

    And that is what Bluetooth is (for).
