My Presario C500T did not came with a pcmcia slot. Must be because of the low end model. Just wondering if it's possible to add one? I've noticed that otehr Presario has same casing styles but with more options.

From what I can see based on the C700T current model you do not have either a pcmcia or express card slot which is a bit disturbing?!

There is no way to add anything to the case and motherboard as with a desktop. There is such a thing as a usb to pcmcia adapter.

As you can see, these are big and clunky and silly expensive.

There is not much you can do with pcmcia that you can't do with usb...wireless, sound cards, video capture, etc. can all be done with a usb 2 adapter. I am afraid that is the only option left open to you.
