Any open slots on the T450s MB?

2015-06-27, 20:13 PM

I'm looking to see if there's any open mini PCI-e slots on the motherboard of my laptop so I can try to install an internal USB port like this. Is it possible to do such a thing? If not, is there room in the laptop to solder some sort of USB hub onto a USB connector?

Solved! See the solution

The T450s uses M.2 slots rather than mPCIe slots. I don't know of an equivalent M.2 adapter.

Okay, so is it possible to solder my mouse receiver directly into one of the USB ports on the motherboard, and will that USB port still be usable or do I need some sort of USB hub to solder between the motherboard and my receiver?
