Sorry for lame question, what is that mPCIe good for except WiFi card?
Got to give credit to Asus, the motherboards look amazing, love the subtle LED's of the big motherboard.
Boards look sexy!

I think WiFi is what it's there for, there aren't many things that shrink down to a card that small, perhaps a TV card could, but the benefit over a USB stick solution is questionable and a full size card would be better. SSDs use mSATA and most other cards are full slot for a reason.

This slot has kinda ruined the board for me - I have no need for it, so it'll only serve to add expense :/

EDIT:

Apparently, it's meant to come with WiFi there - which I find useful!

ASUS Wi-Fi GO! makes computing easier and more rewarding

Recognizing the central role that convenience plays in emerging lifestyles as related to home computing, ASUS has used the seminars to introduce new Wi-Fi GO! technology, tailored to entertainment-minded consumers on the look for more seamless and smoother user experiences. Home entertainment becomes easier with Wi-Fi functions such as DLNA streaming, so users can enjoy content from a variety of devices. The Remote Desktop function provides access to the desktop with a tablet or smartphone acting as remote control, allowing greater convenience by creating a portable virtual desktop. Wi-Fi GO! can also convert PCs into routers, with all of these features fully integrated into a one-stop utility.

There will be two versions of the ASUS Wi-FI GO!. The ASUS Wi-Fi Go! on the left has wireless capabilities and bluetooth v4 while the one on the right lacks the Bluetooth.
