Great find @ $700! I've been looking for something with an express card slot. I believe it's the same processor as my 2011 Mac Mini server only with dedicated instead of shared graphics card/memory - killer performance. Time to retire the old dual core 32bit laptop.

The Express Card slot on this laptop is spring-loaded, and I had an issue with it trying to pop out the card. I inserted a guitar pick (!!!) above and below the card, and it hasn't moved since. Here's the card I use (TI chipset):
