I have a Dell Studio XPS 16 and I would like to replace the built in wireless card.

Is the "mini" card they call it actually a mini pci express card?

If so can I then swap it out with another 3rd party card e.g this one (dont worry about drive issues):

As background, I found the online service manual here:
