Hi, just a quick question. There is an express card slot on the left lower front of my Lenovo laptop/tablet x230, model 3434CTO (or 3434-CTO),

Hi there, my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. The slot you see in the front of the laptop is a 4-in-1 cardreader slot which will allow you to transfer information from memory cards like SD Cards which are used in cameras and similar devices.

So it's not exactly an express-card slot which are used to add peripherals like network cards, usb ports, modems, etc.
