How can I tell if my laptop has Bluetooth?

by Bobs415 / May 21, 2009 10:28 AM PDT

I'm guessing that if my Dell Laptop inspiron 1521 is Bluetooth enabled, that it is driven by some sort of card?

How do I tell if my computer is Bluetooth enabled? There are no Bluetooth icons in either tray at the bottom of my screen.

If it's NOT Bluetooth enabled, what do I need, where do I get one, and for how much?

Thanks so much for your assistance!!!
