Express Card PCMCIA
A couple of years ago I remember when USB
to PCMCIA Adapters first hit the market - they gave people an
awesome alternative to buying lower-quality USB 3g cards since they
could continue to use PCMCIA cards through the USB port - the main
drawback was that they were extremely expensive when they were first
released (in the neighborhood of $250).
They have since falled in price (ours is currently priced at $180),
but now users have a much cheaper alternative for using a PCMCIA card
with a new laptop without PCMCIA ports (Express Card is getting more
and more popular for such ports) - an Express
Card PCMCIA Adapter.
