Ask Max: What does ™no modem installed™ on your used Macs mean?

Asked on 02/06/2009:

When (PowerMax used Macs) say ™no modem installed™ what does that mean?


Modern Apple computers do not come with built-in modems these days. This has a lot to do with the availability of broadband throughout the country. Most people are not using dial-up anymore so putting a modem in every Mac just adds needless expense to the majority of the Mac users. Modems are still available but as USB dongles that are purchased separately.

We still list the modem as not installed because some of our older systems will include internal modems and a few of our customers are looking for that feature.

Hope that clears things up,
