How to determine if Macbook Pro supports BlueTooth 4.0?

How can I figure out if a Macbook Pro supports BlueTooth 4.0? It's a 13" from 2011, which is right around the time they started to ship with Bluetooth 4.0. 

This list might help.

Mac Specs: By Capability: Bluetooth Capabilities

"Please note that this listing provides the standard Bluetooth capability of Macs as shipped. Systems noted as "Optional" could be upgraded with internal Bluetooth after purchase if it was not configured initially. External Bluetooth USB adapters also are available.

In general, please additionally be mindful of asterisks, as these indicate that particularly important details are provided on the complete specs page.

If you are not sure which Mac you have, look it up by Order Number, Model Number, EMC Number, Model Identifier or Serial Number "Snippet," with EveryMac.com's Ultimate Mac Lookup feature. If you need help, refer to Mac Identification. "

You need to find out your LMP version using System Profiler: apple>about this mac>more info>system report>hardware>bluetooth


If you have Bluetooth 4.0, the LMP will be VersNr 6.


Here is a list of the other LMP versions, if you are interested. http://www.bluetooth.org/Technical/AssignedNumbers/link_manager.htm
