    I recently bought a T732 off ebay, and I have a question about one of the back cover panels, its at the top left, just beneath the battery. What is this slot for?

    EDIT:
    Nvm, found the youtube videos, its a pci slot.

    I have a T734 (which is basically the same) and it can only fit WWAN cards; I asked Fujitsu if an ssd (mpcie or msata) can be installed to that slot and they said no.

    @utopian201 did you actually try it? Tech support knows nothing, usually. It is an m.2 2242 b-keyed slot, meaning m.2 2242 sata ssd, or msata half-size ssd via adapter, may work. I'd definitely give it a try if I had one.

    No, it wouldn't make sense to buy one to try if they said it doesn't work. If I had one for free I'd try. I don't think the slot is a sata compatible because the slot is used for the wwan slot (mpcie). I don't think a slot can be electrically compatible with both sata and mpcie.

    @utopian201 b-keyed m.2 is actually all about that. I ordered a dirty cheap m.2 to SATA adapter - we'll know for sure when it arrives.

    Did you get yours from playitagainpc? Which type of damage did you buy? They have a bunch of listings, some with "screen damage" and some with "case damage" and some with both. Prices differ within $10-$15, but I can't tell which gives me the best chance of getting a good machine (more expensive ones have screen damage, which sounds worse then case damage). I asked the seller about price differences/versus quality and got a completely unclear answer. To me it looks like the best machines cost less?

    This is a bit late, but if you still need to know, or if others are thinking same.

    I got one that said "case damage". Mine has marks and scratches on case, but no other damage (screen much harder to fix or anything, so case damage probly best).
