Can I add bluetooth?

I have a Mid 2009 20" iMac that i would like to add bluetooth to so I can take advantage of a trackpad. Is there a way to do this on this model and where could I source the item from?

Is this a good question?

Most likely your iMac has bluetooth support. Can you give us the last four digits of your serial number so we can tell which iMac model you have.


The last 4 are 26mj


You'll need to use a USB to Bluetooth adapter.


Appreciate the help guys. I picked this unit up used and didn't know it was the educational model. I'll find a dongle to use.


I have same problem please help me

The iMac "Core 2 Duo" 2.0 20-Inch Aluminum (Mid-2009/Education Only) -- which only was available for sale to educational institutions.

2.0 GHz Intel "Core 2 Duo" processor, with two independent processor "cores" on a single silicon chip, a 3 MB shared level 2 cache, a 1066 MHz system bus, 1 GB of RAM (1066 MHz DDR3 SDRAM), a 160 GB (7200 RPM) hard drive, a vertically-mounted slot-loading DVD±R DL "SuperDrive", NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics with 128 MB of memory shared with the system, a built-in iSight video camera, and built-in stereo speakers underneath the 20" glossy TFT Active Matrix LCD (1680x1050 native) display.

Connectivity includes four USB 2.0 ports, a Firewire "800" port, built-in AirPort Extreme, and Gigabit Ethernet, as well as a Mini DisplayPort, which supports an external display in "extended desktop" mode.

The education version of this model does not offer Bluetooth
