Umm, PCI has become almost as legacy as ISA, but here's the first link:

If you were so inclined, you could probably wire it to a contemporary x86
laptop via one of those Thunderbolt-to-PCIe thingies (for the record: I've

a PCIe-PCI bridge wired via the docking station, and could do the same
right away with my most recent one and its ExpressCard interface).
