2.5Gbps card reader

Synchrotech has launched the CFExpressPro+, a new ExpressCard CompactFlash adapter that uses the uses the 2.5Gbps PCIe portion of the ExpressCard standard and works with either ExpressCard 34 or 54 slots. The new cards provides access to CompactFlash in both PIO and UDMA modes, taking full advantage of the new Lexar UDMA 300X and SanDisk Extreme Ducati Edition cards. It can be used with MacBook Pros, and specially equipped desktop computers and supports Mac OS X 10.4 or later. It accepts CompactFlash Type I, II and CompactFlash II+ Hard Drives, including Microdrives but does not work with CF+ I/O Devices. The accessory measures 34 x 75 x 5mm (not including extended portion of card). Pricing was unavailable. [corrected]

    WRONG. MacBooks do NOT...

    MacBooks do NOT have an ExpressCard slot in them.

    Macbook Pros do have card slots. Therefore, this is a card for Macbooks.

    I'm going to agree with comments #1, this card is not for MacBooks, its for MacBook Pros.

    Any clue

    if these work with Powerbooks? I know mine has a PCI express slot, but not sure what size it is... This would be much faster than my crappy USB CF card reader - a boon for large photography jobs.

    The title is misleading

    The title should read "2.5Gbps card reader for MacBook Pros launches".
