Inspiron 7520 (a.k.a. 15R Special Edition) - Does it have a mini-PCI slot?

I have an Inspiron 7520 (a.k.a. 15R Special Edition).

Does the motherboard have a mini-PCI slot?

If yes, where is it located?

Thanks in advance for your answer.

There is only one PCI Express socket - nothing else.  If your system has an mSATA drive, that socket is on a daughtercard.

IOr is your question "do I have an open PCI Express card slot" (in which case the answer is no, you don't -- there's just one in the system, and it's taken by your WLAN or WLAN/Bluetooth card).

Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions.

You replied that there is only one open PCI Express card slot and that is used by WLAN/Bluetooth card.

What about normal PCI (that is, non PCI-Express) slots? Are there any on the said motherboard?

It's the socket where your wireless card sits.  Or is your question "do I have an open PCI Express card slot" (in which case the answer is no, you don't -- there's just one in the system, and it's taken by your WLAN or WLAN/Bluetooth card).
