    ExpressCard... What is is good for?

    I found myself looking at this little slot in the side of my Win7 Dell laptop and wondering why it was there. I hate paying for technology and features I have no earthly use for, but there it was just the same. So the question became, "What is it good for"?

    As far as I can see - not that much. The laptop has all the usual stuff plus both 2.0 and 3.0 USB, eSATA, HDMI, and a SD card reader. What's left? Maybe a SSD drive. Hhhmmm... I wonder if I could boot from that? Or put some disk intensive files on it? Or something worth while at least.

    Any bright ideas?

    I should append this to say that I've seen a number of interweb articles about booting from a ExpressCard SSD in a MacBook, but not in a Windows computer. Sort of makes me think that if it were such a good idea, I'd see a lot more about it.
