Add bluetooth

2008-09-25, 13:37 PM
Is it possible to buy and add the integrated bluetooth device from Lenovo to a W500 that was ordered without bluetooth? I know I can just get a USB dongle but it would be nicer to get the integrated one.

daystrom,

 

The integrated Bluetooth card is located behind the LCD bezel and is not a CRU (Customer Replaceable Unit).  This applies to the T61, T400, T500, and W700 as well.

 

You have two options available to add Bluetooth to your W500:

1)  Have the integrated card installed by a licensed Lenovo servicer

2)  Purchase a USB Bluetooth adapter -- this option would be cheaper ($45 on Lenovo website) and less painful.

 

Regards
