Apple Mac users - device choices

Following on from a debate over at PC Pro, here’s a list with the connectivity options for all you Apple Mac users out there:

PowerBook 15″/17″
PC card slot, can use the ExpressCards with the supplied adaptor, or a USB modem

PowerBook 12″, iBook, MacBook
No slot, so the USB modem must be used

MacBook Pro
Either ExpressCard or USB modem

Desktop machines
USB modem

    Have you tried 2.07.05 - http://www.mobileconnected.co.uk/mac-os-207-dashboard-released/

    Failing that, VF will release an official Leopard client in the next couple of weeks.
