I cannot seem to locate information on this laptop about the bluetooth radio. Perhaps I have an older verion of this system that doesn't have bluetooth? If I don't have it is there anyway to upgrade the internals so I can?
I have usb bluetooth sticks, but I really want this internal.

Welcome to the forum!
According to model number of your ThinkPad, it hasn't come with the BT installed:

Do you have the small rough rectangular surface on the front of your lid, similar to wireless grilles on the side? If you do, your machine may be BT ready...if you don't it's definitely not and it would be quite a hassle installing it IMHO.
Good luck and let us know.

Before ordering anything, I'd study HMM a bit to find out what's involved apart from swapping the modem card with the BT, it can be downloaded from here:
You'll also find the necessary FRU part numbers in it.
