Default PCI-Epress and Laptops

Does any one know if a PCI-Epress Video capture card would work with a Dell laptop?

some of them have pcie 16x slots, but you knoe laptop ram slots those weird slots.. pcie 16x is like that on a laptop. So its upgradable. But one problem is the heat.

Tell me this...how would a standard capture card even fit in a laptop? :P

With a laptop, you're limited to USB and PCMCIA. Some have special AGP/PCIe slots inside, but cards would be incredibly expensive and there aren't any just capturecard upgrades for them

Laptops don't use PCI Express at all..
They use PCMCIA Slots.

I'd go with USB. I'd use something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814144030.

EDIT: Don't get that one, it has terrible reviews. There are others like that; that's just an example of what one is. You may want to just look through this list: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...047+1148410234.

You'd have to get a USB one, the last one Jamxx suggested looks good. Or you could get it for a Desktop instead?
