I'm confused because the wifi and bluetooth card isn't in the description so do you have to buy it separate? :rolleyes:
It is. Read it and see the images. It also states it in the description. I will let you know Tuesday I guess. If it's only the adapter it's going back

On the face of it it looks perfect.

Good Luck
Thanks for that mate :) I think it should serve me right. Still expensive though but not much difference than if I bought the parts separately.

I'm going to purchase the IOGEAR GBU521 bluetooth USB adapter from amazon.com. The article doesn't state that WiFi is required (that I read) but that bluetooth is required to be turned on. Please correct me if I'm mistaken so I don't purchase this without being able to use it.

Handoff won't be officially released until 8.1 is available which will be Monday (10/20/2014). That could be the reason why you're not able to get it to work.

Handoff with the apps and hotspot won't work with bt usb adapters. only calls and messages I think

but surely it should still show up in General tho?
That is why I said that handoff wouldn't work with the bluetooth usb adapters to begin with. What you are getting with the phonecalls on os x and the texts it's not handoff. At least that is how I understand it. Correct me if I'm wrong. Altogether it's called continuity. The handoff bit is the apps that can be picked up on any device in the exact same state. The calls and texts is part of continuity and theres the other bit which is the hotspot bit. In your system report/bluetooth it says it doesn't support handoff doesn't it. Thats what I get in mine anyway. Mine supports LE but no handoff or hotspot
