  1. You do not need PCIe slot in your laptop for this & besides even if it have, you have no way to access it. What the ViDock require is ExpressCard slot. I quote from the link you posted:

    "ViDock 3, ViDock 4, and ViDock 4 Plus are expansion chassis tailored specifically for adapting PCI Express graphics cards for use with ExpressCard equipped laptop PCs"

    Unfortunately I can not see in the internet whether your laptop have the ExpressCard slot. You can check this yourself.
