If you have an older laptop, there’s a good chance that you can’t take advantage of newer add-on cards. Since the introduction of the ExpressCard slot, many manufacturers have been focusing on creating products that fit the newer standard. Since many people still have only a CardBus slot, this ExpressAdapt adapter will likely come in handy.
This is a simple adapter, meaning that it won’t need any additional software or drivers. The $45 adapter is a bit steep, and depending on what type of card you’re adding, may not be worth it. If you’re using it to add something like a wireless adapter to your notebook, you may as well just save up your money for a newer laptop, as you’ll probably be sinking nearly $100 into an aging computer.
