I've been thinking of buying a new Apple. Will a new Apple product connect with my current PC router? Or will I need to buy the Apple Air port? I tryed some searches here but couldn't find an answer. I'm a noob so be patient with me! Also while I think about it is Limewire compatable with an Apple?

Hi ranger81,

The MacBook for instance, offers wireless capability with it's built in Airport.

Read a bit more about the product Here.

I'm not sure about Limewire, but Apple offers a product called iTunes.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

Im guessing you're talking about going wireless, and in that case, all MacBooks and iMacs have built-in wireless cards, called Airport. Mac Pros come with the option of a wireless card. Im not sure if the Mac Minis have built in wireless, or if you can even add a wireless cards. If you're not talking wireless, all Macs except the Macbook Air have Ethernet built in.

As far as Im aware, routers dont care what operating system you use.

Yes, Limewire is available for OS X.
