PCI Express 34 alternative Tags: PCI Express Laptops Last response: July 29, 2010 6:05 PM in Laptop Tech Support Share wafalcon July 27, 2010 2:17:30 AM Hello: I just got HP Envy17 and it is a very nice computer, how ever it does not have PCI slot and does not have FireWire port either. I wanted to buy myself Matrox MXO2 mini I/O Box for my video production needs, and that device connects through PCIe host ExpressCard/34. Are there any alternatives, like an external PCIe card reader that connects to like eSATA or USB 3.0? Also what are the alternatives to firewire port, do I need to get some external capture box for that? Any help would be appreciated, I really like this computer and would love to keep it, but if there will be no alternatives to these connections I will have to return it. Thanks in advance!
