Do We Need an ExpressCard Slot?
Apple doesn't seem to think so. They've decided to replace the ExpressCard slot with SD (secure digital) slots in the new MacBook Pro. Will other laptop manufacturers follow? I admit that I don't have a single ExpressCard peripheral. My Thinkpad X200 Tablet comes with WWAN built-in (through AT&T). I don't use it since I tether using my smartphone.
Will ExpressCards suffer the same fate as PCMCIA cards? Will they become extinct?
