The Dell GX260 is a mid-to-low end desktop PC designed (at the time of release) to provide average consumers with a cheaper and more affordable option for an up to date computer. The GX260 features a 2.0GHz Pentium 4 processor, 512MB installed RAM (supports 2 GB total), a 40GB hard drive, and a CD-ROM drive of varying speeds depending on the particular model. The GX260 includes additional options such as a 1.44MB floppy disk drive, integrated video, audio and ethernet controllers on the motherboard, and a stylish black mid tower case.

The GX260 was released in early 2002, and it is worth noting that with the advancement of technology today computers are almost nearly outdated the moment they are put on a retail shelf; this makes the GX260 ancient in the world of computers.

No there isn't any bluetooth. You can use a usb-based (or possibly pci) adapter to achieve this.

This machine is really old, plus the Pentium 4 line (Netburst architecture) was abandoned due to inefficiency and the Pentium 3 is what was used instead to help usher the newer generation of processors that we have today.
