It depends on the model configuration. There are some models that have an Intel WLAN + WIMAX card, rather than WLAN + Bluetooth.

Like people said some models come with it and some don't but I think most do.
Click fn + f2 and see if bluetooth is available

Can't believe on that.
Just bought this same computer with the top specs, ans just realized that there isn't bluetoohh :mad:
I never thought on this, so didn't even check it on the speces before buying.

Now have to change my bluetooth ear phone, mouse and would need a cable to tranfers data from my mobile?????????????

Miss my old computer!

Or just get a WLAN + BT card. It's a cheap and easy upgrade.....much easier than replacing all those peripherals you just mentioned.

Actually it'd be a downgrade, as the WiMax + WIFI was supposed to be "better and newer" than WLAN + BT...

Do you use WIMAX internet service? If not, there is no advantage whatsoever in having that capability in the card. And the stock card's WLAN capability is "entry-level," at best...it's a basic 150Mbps single-stream card. Virtually any replacement card you buy these days offers better WLAN capabilities, and as already noted, WIMAX is irrelevant if you don't use it. (As is bluetooth.)
