expresscard came and went in the blink of an eye (at least it felt like it). it was the last gasp of PCMCIA. a shame as it offered a nice level of versatility.
my new laptop has a SD reader but it is at least fast being it is a PCIe direct type (80MB/s+ with the speedy cards). and i'm doing USB3 readers for CF/XQD (same as the SD slot)
My ultraportable laptop is a Q3-introduced, ivy bridge model that has a 34/54 PCIe Expresscard slot, so they are not dead yet. It also has a fast SD reader, not that I need it very often.
