Default Broadcom CrystalHD Mini PCIe card? - 02-12-2010, 07:06 PM

Hi all,

So I was trolling on SlickDeals, and found this link:
It's for a Broadcom CrystalHD mini-PCIe card.

Would this work in my 10v? what would it do for me (e.g. improve resolution, increase speed, etc.) I am currently Hackintoshed to OS X (10.6.2) - is there support/drivers for this (looks like there are Mac drivers available, but unsure if the super-modders have gotten them to work on our Hackintoshes).

Any input appreciated. Thanks!

No. There is no mini-PCIe slot in the mini 10v unless you are one of the few who ordered yours with the WWAN option (i.e. cellular 3G data).

Is the WWAN slot in the 10v a real MiniPCIe or is it like the 9 where it is USB only? In the 9, the Crystal card can work in the WLAN slot, but then you have no WiFi unless you use a USB adapter. What size is the WLAN card in the 10v? If it's the half-height kind like in the 1012, the Crystal won't fit.
