Where art thou PCIE half slot?

Hello Guy and Gals,

 

Quick question, I have a lenovo w520 the Specs Sheet on the website says it has:

 

"internal Pcie slots 1 full, 2 half"

 

I found ONE full Pcie slot  (My HDD) and ONE Half (My WiFi Card) both located under the keyboard.

 

Where is this elusive second pcie half slot?

 

I would like to get another SSD as my video editing seems to be bottlenecking with just one and those SSD half cards seem like a good soluton!

 

I do have a express slot think i should get a wifi card for it and ditch my internal for a 64gb SSD for as a Scratch drive?

 

Thank you for your time!

There are only 2 slots - 1 full (for either mSATA or WWAN) and one half-height (for WiFi).
