We've moved and I threw out the old fax machine.
I've read that the new MacBooks won't work with the Apple USB modem for purposes of faxing. Will my 2010 MacBook work with it - or better yet other brands I might find brand new?
Please don't say go use an online fax service - none of them are really free... (We only send probably 10 faxes a year, and wouldn't mind a "pay per page" model - but they all seem to want to charge a monthly subscription as well.)
Please also don't tell me faxing is going away and isn't used any more. Try dealing with a bank or a real estate related company.
So again - forgetting online - Have 2010 MacBook, have a phone line (VOIP) but no internal modem. Will the Apple USB modem work - will 3rd party USB modems work?????
Looks like maybe US Robotics makes one that's still in production and working with Snow at least in whatever hardware was tested.
I didn't want to have to buy a new printer, just to send a fax. And the idea here was to get rid of giant clunky hardware. This "dongle", used just and only for sending a fax might be OK - assuming it actually works.
There are of course always used, refurbs, etc. to shop. Apple and otherwise -
(Just found the US Robotics used/open box shipped for $31 on Amazon - it's worth a go. I will post back and add my experience with it after I can use it a few times).
