M14x R1 - Hardware Slot Next To Network Card

Recommended Posts

I've noticed that there is a rather long hardware slot next to the network card in my M14x R1 (see section circled in red in attachment).  Is anyone aware of what this slot is for?  Are there add-on cards that could potentially be inserted here?  If yes, would anything you know be worth it?  Is it even an expansion slot in the first place, or is it actually some kind of diagnostic attachment slot?

hey man ,


see this video at 2:05




Something about a "WIRELESS HD CARD"


here's the copy/Paste ; 


WirelessHD (WiHD) is a standard for the wireless transmission of high-definition video data content meant for consumer electronic devices. The standard is proprietarily owned by Silicon Image and is now backed by a consortium that currently has 40 members including LG, Samsung, NEC, Panasonic, Sony, Toshiba and Philips. The WirelessHD standard is meant to be used for consumer electronic devices such as mobile devices, PCs and entertainment devices like TVs.


(i updated my old wifi card to a 5Ghz + BT card, and it's way better !)


EDIT : i just re-checked the video, and the guy mentions mSata drive. wonder if there's anyway to make it work ! that'd be crazy
