A MiniPCI Express slot is a version of the PCI-Express x1 slot for Notebooks

MiniPCI Express Adapters


Though the slot is PCIe in form factor, there is a strong possibility (as yet unconfirmed for the mini PCIe) that it has been crippled to only accept devices with PCI-ID's contained in a BIOS whitelist. (see Problem with unauthorized MiniPCI network card).

Linux support

MiniPCI Express adapters are handled by the Linux PCI subsystem.
