    Multiple PCMCIA slots

    I was looking for a cheap laptop on ebay with at least two expansion bays but it seems all modern laptops only have one PCMCIA slot?

    Is this right, are centrino laptops able to provide two?

    That looks a goodish laptop for the money. I'd just be a bit wary of buying one of ebay.

    Aha, what a bizarre way to label them.
