Half-length PCI Express x16 ??

Hi

Just wondering what this means as its a bit confusing

Slot 2: half-length, low profile-height, PCI Express x16

The mother board from a Lenovo M57 6072 has a full PCIe x16 but im a bit confused by the half length bit
here is the site

I intend to put a 3d graphics card in there and would like to know if this MoBo can handle an off the shelf card

This is the Mobo layout

    "Half-Length, Low-Profile Height" means that while the slot will support x16 cards, only cards that are significantly shorter and thinner than many high-end graphics cards will fit.
