    I am buying a notebook, and was wondering what the Type II PC card slot refered to. I have found a few sites on google, they say that it is memory, but some of the brands also advertise they have DIMM slots, so i got confused on that. they also say it is plug and play, so that must mean that it is external, right. so is it like USB and firewire, or is it like a new floppy drive? I know a little about computers, so i really just want to know what i can put in this slot and how that helps me in the future.

    umm... yeah that is included with the name sometimes. What can i put in there. the cards look like floppies with a PCI connector. and i cant figure out what any of them do. i see some that say hardrive, but they are too small to be a harddrive, are they flash memory. some others have 10/100, that is a netorking card, however i see no antenna to signify wireless capability or an ethernet port.

    A pcmcia Type II slot will accept a variety of devices . . some that come to mind are:

    Modem
    Network Adapter card ( 10/100 )
    Wireless Network acaptor card
    Flash memory
    USB connectors

    it is the equivilent of a pci slot in a desktop

    Hope this helps . . wrs
