What is the most common type of expansion slot found in laptop computers?

Answer: The PCMCIA slot is what most laptops use. It's the opening in the side of the laptop where a little card fits into. Most laptops have two PCMCIA expansion slots and they are typically used for connecting modems, network cards, or video acceleration/video support cards.
