Can you explain what these are:

- Expansion slots
ExpressCard/54 slot (supports 34 and 54 form factors)

- Expansion port for HP expansion base xb3000

- Network interface
10/100 LAN Ethernet integrated

With "Network Interface", I saw some laptops with "Ethernet 10/100BT integrated network interface", What is the difference?

Also, is the NVIDIA® GeForce™ Go 7400 a good graphics card that will last for long time (meaning will I be able to play games for at least three years without worrying that it being too old and not compatible) This is because I bought a Geforce 4 MX420 a while ago, and found that the MX series doesnt support pixel shading, but the Geforce 4 series does.

The laptop looks preetty good, but the graphics card wont be able to play the latest games, but should be good with the media centre.
