Neither the 2008 nor the 2009 models allowed the ExpressCard slot being used with Windows 7/Vista. Three weeks ago I asked Apple about this simple question and got escalated three times just to get no answer (1. Called shop line -> got connected to tech support -> tech support ask her boss -> boss send the question on to Apple engineers and promised to send the answer per email). Meanwhile I read on the RME Audio forum that the RME Madiface can be used with Windows 7 on the 2010 Macbook Pro 17". Can some people please acknowledge that?
