    what bluetooth dongle should I buy?


    I need a Bluetooth dongle... but it has to work with usb 1.0 (maybe 1.1). The laptop it will be used on is a hp Presario c751nr. I saw most are usb 2.0 but I've heard 2.0 is also usable in 1.0.

    Most are backward compatible. If you want to be sure just look at the specs for the one you want to buy.

    USB 1.0? Are you sure about that? According to this it is USB 2.0 Compaq Presario C751NR Specs - CNET

    I know that its usb 2.0 but windows 7 from what I can recall says 1.0. Im thinking of buying the asus bt400 usb bluetooth dongle. This is actually my dads computer (I recently gave it to him when I upgraded) am I just overthinking it?
