    I may use it for additional firewire 400/800 port cards in the future, or a wireless card sounds like a possibility too. On a side note I raided two external usb powered 5400rpm 80 gb drives a cople days ago...:eek3d: :mamoru:

    I fold up my post it notes and stick them in there. Someone should make an application for OS X that has sticky notes that you can store. :hsugh:

    The Exprescard slot is mostly useless at the moment. Anyone actually use it?

    How often do you use the PCMCIA slot?

    Ethernet and Wireless are built into most notebooks, and to hell if I'm using a SCSI DVD-ROM or whatever out of that slot.

    Mostly useless to a lot of people, but I want the option.

    Not what I meant. DO you have the option? What I mean is that... does ANYONE actually make Expresscards yet?

    No. Very few vendors produce them. So, we don't even have the option to use that slot yet. Which is why nobody does. In about a year there will be choices for the expresscard slot. Right now there aren't any (many?) at all.

    If Verizon sold an Expresscard, I'd snap it up and use it. But they don't sell it yet, in my area.
