Hi Cajun,
my 3 month old dell laptop doesn't have a PCMIA slot.
As you mentioned be cautious.

best wishes

In the world of laptops, the PCMIA "slot" is virtually gone from current and future models. There is a new slot design (for new cards, of course) -- "PCI Express" is I think the terminology -- so if you are considering anything in the original PCMIA format that is more than cheap, be aware -- it may not work with your new laptop you want for Christmas.

This includes the Echo Indigo I referenced above. I do not know if they yet offer a new design ...
