The memory card reader is usually located on the side or on the front of the laptop and many users can ignore this feature because of its odd location. To make things worse Eee PC comes with a dummy memory card inserted to protect the memory card reader and since this dummy is black (the same color of the rear side of the notebook) many people will completely miss this device. This memory card reader supports MMC (MultiMedia Card), SD (Secure Digital), MS (Memory Stick) and MS-PRO (Memory Stick Pro) formats.
