Could a PCI card be used in a laptop?

By sven.samuelsson ·
I have a card to be placed in a PCI-slot in a desktop PC. The card is a Winradio card. I would like to use it connected to my laptop. Are there such solutions in the market? For example to use the PCMCIA slot or a USB port and connect in a cabinet.

Find an Alternate

Back when full function docking stations were common and before USB became an almost universal external interface solution, you could find laptops with PCI and ISA slots. Or at least docking stations with PCI slots in them.

I think both by performance and cost you will be much better off finding a USB or PCMCIA solution. The other thing is that a newer device will have better support for newer versions of Windows.
