    thats a good point, i think the only way to pull that off is with right-angle connectors

    The Damozal model has right angle connectors, but as I said noone seems to sell it.

    Unless the AAEON model has the sockets soldered both sides, you should be able to use a soldering iron on them. If so, you could still use a heatgun or something to remove them.

    Ok I just found this page using Google. I'm trying to do the same project, which is to add a few USB 2.0 ports to my pitiful 3xUSB 1.1 ports. I'm thinking about getting one of these mini-pci to usb modules and then connecting (the guts of) a usb hub to one of the usb ports on the module. The guts will then by put into my floppy drive (which is never used anymore) and will point out towards the opening of the floppy disk drive as extra usb ports. lol. seems like a long shot but I'm doing some research to see if it's feasible.

    Welcome! Are you doing this on a Toughbook (if so, what model) or on another brand?
