I have an HP-tx1000. It has 4 Gb ram now but its slow HDD doesn't let me do serious stuff.

I wonder If I can put a mini pci-e ssd in place of the WLAN card.

Will this work on Win7 x64?

From PCI Express - Wikipedia:

Some notebooks (notably the Asus Eee PC, the MacBook Air, and the Dell mini9 and mini10) use a variant of the PCI Express Mini Card as an SSD. This variant uses the reserved and several non-reserved pins to implement SATA and IDE interface passthrough, keeping only USB, ground lines, and sometimes the core PCIe 1x bus intact. This makes the miniPCIe flash and solid state drives sold for netbooks largely incompatible with true PCI Express Mini implementations.

I guess that means that it probably will not work.
