IrDA in laptops

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Matthew Strickland, Jul 21, 2003.

  1. Hi all,

    Is IrDA a dying feature on modern laptops these days? Im having more trouble
    finding irda equipped laptops for users with older non-Bluetooth capable
    mobiles. I guess bluetooth/built in wireless is taking over rather quickly.
    Personally I still prefer Irda, esp with several irda laser printers still
    around.

    Matt

    All the recent $orkplace laptoys have IRDa, except the powerbooks.

    I'm just having trouble finding a decent bluetooth equipped phone which
    will talk to my ipaq (Don't want to have to try and keep IR links set up
    while walking...)
