    I think WiFi is what it's there for, there aren't many things that shrink down to a card that small, perhaps a TV card could, but the benefit over a USB stick solution is questionable and a full size card would be better. SSDs use mSATA and most other cards are full slot for a reason.

    This slot has kinda ruined the board for me - I have no need for it, so it'll only serve to add expense :/

    EDIT:

    Apparently, it's meant to come with WiFi there - which I find useful!
    a mini-PCIe riser card that packs a dual-band wireless networking adapter.
    ASUS Wi-Fi GO! makes computing easier and more rewarding

    Recognizing the central role that convenience plays in emerging lifestyles as related to home computing, ASUS has used the seminars to introduce new Wi-Fi GO! technology, tailored to entertainment-minded consumers on the look for more seamless and smoother user experiences. Home entertainment becomes easier with Wi-Fi functions such as DLNA streaming, so users can enjoy content from a variety of devices. The Remote Desktop function provides access to the desktop with a tablet or smartphone acting as remote control, allowing greater convenience by creating a portable virtual desktop. Wi-Fi GO! can also convert PCs into routers, with all of these features fully integrated into a one-stop utility.
    There will be two versions of the ASUS Wi-FI GO!. The ASUS Wi-Fi Go! on the left has wireless capabilities and bluetooth v4 while the one on the right lacks the Bluetooth.
