I agree, I'm shopping for original mini-pci myself for my old laptop, and
only looking at Ralink and Atheros chipsets. There are some wonderful
prices available in China, like $6, the problem is how to get them
exported. Try eBay, the direct-from-Taiwan deals. Search by chipset. Make
sure it does 11n or at least 11g, and hostap if you're interested in that.
I've also used Pricewatch because the format lets you browse better than
Froogle. There are plenty of half-size mini pci express cards out there,
it's getting hard to find much else.
