    For example, check out page 15 of the following document which is the technical specification of the Motherboard Samsung N130 carrying the Intel Atom N270 with Intel Chipset 945GSE:

    https://idoc.pub/documents/intel-945-motherboard-schematic-diagram-q6ngjzq0o1nv

    One PCIe* mini-card connector with support for PCIe* x1 and USB based mini-cards
    WLAN activity signal from PCIe* mini-card to front panel header is provided.

    Four USB 2.0 ports are provided on the back panel with two USB 2.0 ports on the front panel. One internal header with one USB port is provided on the motherboard to support an internal USB flash drive. An additional USB port is routed to the mini-card connector.

    However, for the Vaio CR21S that comes with an Intel Core 2 Duo with GME965 chipset, it's not so clear anymore. The same manual, "Development Kit User Manual":

    http://pdfstream.manualsonline.com/b/bc7ab696-4d63-4a92-82ca-e69114ef1f73.pdf

    The ICH8-M provides a total of ten USB 2.0 ports. Three ports are routed to a triplestack USB connector at J3A1. Two ports are routed to a combination RJ-45/dual USB connector at J5A1. Four ports are routed to USB front panel headers at J6H3 and J6H4. The last is routed to the PCI-Express* docking connector at J9C1.

    It's very strange because it doesn't say anything about the PCIe Mini-Card slot and it talks about a PCI Express Docking Interface that this VAIO CR doesn't have.
