Don't think so, I think they are just made for Netbooks.

the connector on the mini-PCI-e slot is a lot lower profile than standard PCI-e x1 cards, so it physically would not work.

Yep, should work fine with the adaptor.

I almost bought one of those MP1s a few months ago (I've got a 64GB mini pci-e OCZ SSD), but shipping was almost double the cost of the card.
