    Get a small USB flash drive like a SanDisk Cruzer Fit 32GB or 64GB and put it in there to store stuff like downloaded programs and drivers. That's what I am using in my internal USB port. With the dual USB you could have a mini-BT in one and the flash drive in the other one. The internal USB card might be bootable in the 18 (I have not tried it) because the DMC slot is made differently than the older machine. If that is the case you can use it for flashing firmware, too.
