They should create a special port, so like that, you could use the new video card, and it should display on the laptop's screen.

It plugs into your ExpressCard slot. It can still display through your laptop's monitor.

USB and Firewire are too slow and don't have enough bandwidth to send such data. Like I said, it uses the ExpressCard slot in your laptop.

Yup. It's essentially a compact PCI-E slot.

EDIT>>> The XG Station shows up as another video card, and you'll need an external monitor to use it. So you can't use it on your laptop's built-in monitor. Still gives good performance boost though.
