    Hello and welcome to the forum - :)

    Now I do not have a MAC computer, but I do own the iPad2 and have a BT (i.e. bluetooth) keyboard and BT headphones.

    BT in the iPad is mainly used for the purposes above - not sure how much more can be done (speakers would be another option) - take a look at this discussion on the Apple Support Community HERE - I'll be interested for my own potential uses of this wireless technology!

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad

    Welcome to the forum! There are a lot of great people here willing to lend a hand anytime. Often using the search feature (in the toolbar at the top of every page) will lead you to the answers you're looking for. If not, feel free to post a question in the appropriate area.

    Please take a moment to view the information linked below my signature to get the most out of your iPad as well as our forum.

    Regarding your question, the iPad's BT won't pair with a Mac. See page 22 of the User Guide:

    http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/iPad_User_Guide.pdf

    However there are apps that will allow you to connect to your Mac via WiFi.

    I'm moving your post to the iPad App area where you're likely to get a better response to your question.

    Welcome again and enjoy!
