    Yes, express slot cards are not compatible with older PCMCIA. Since you dont actually own one of those data cards, you can do on with the purchase of the laptop. Some telecom providers should soon churn out express card solutions in the near future. So, just keep your fingers crossed for that.

    Moreover, those data cards are extremely costly if you buy it from the Reliance World (they ditched the 'Web World' name a few days back) I would get a cheap handset with datacable for wireless internet connectivity than spend make a huge one time purchase and regular monthly bills.
