How long would it take to transfer 10GB folder from 1 Macbook to another using Bluetooth?

You do realize that you asked a related question yesterday, and none of the answers recommended using Bluetooth -- for a reason? – Daniel Beck Jan 1 '11 at 20:40

According to Wikipedia, practical data transfer rate is 2.1 Mbit/s or 0.2625 MB/s. Therefore it would take approx. 10.5 hours.

Macbooks all have Bluetooth 2.0+EDR or 2.1+EDR. The sections about these are the source of your numbers. – Daniel Beck Jan 1 '11 at 20:44
