Here's an easy one. New (refurb) 2.0 macbook(leopard) that I would like to bluetooth to Epson CX9400fax. It has a port for bluetooth on the front. The SWMBO also has a 24" "glossy" imac(tiger). Which bluetooth adapter works best for printing and is it possible to have two OS"s. Make it simple macbook to printer would be an easy solution. Too many cheap Epson printers can be a problem.

The *ONLY* BT dongle I have found that works with Epson printers is the one sold by Epson.

Ok, in input jack is not bluetooth, but fits a USB plug. The "logo" is to raindrops or maybe tadpoles. Got to love Epson. By the way , generic ink will work if you plug it in and keep trying. I did have to put a black oem in to make the other generics work on a r300. Thanks BGR, hot in the Valley again..

Also, most BT Dongles won't even physically fit!
Hot is correct, 92ยบ F as I type.
