I plan on purchasing a DELL XPS M140.

It says it has an Express Card Slot. Does this mean it's for PCMCIA? I tried searchin around on the Dell Forums and a few other people asked this question but got no answers. I even looked on newegg at other cards to see if the reviews said they used with a xps system but no luck

Also.

Im looking for a Card that allows you to attach a antenna onto it. Alot of websites i read recommend this. Orinoco GOLD card.

I can't really find a normal retailer to order from. Im basically looking for something nice on newegg, that i can attach an Antenna 2 and also price isn't an option.

As to the antenna question. It doesn't say but I assume the slot will be internal and should have it's own antenna. As an internal part trying to get an external antenna on it would be pretty tacky, if possible. [/url]

ok.

well the Orinoco GOLD card everyone is talking about is a PCMCIA card and has an input to hook up a pigtail connection for an extended omni directional antenna.

I was just wondering on any other models that allow this. cause this card is rather expensive and i don't like using ebay.
