Looks like WHDI port for some wireless card like this. http://www.ixbt.com/short/images/2009/Nov/amimon-whdi-embedded.jpg

I'd say this could be a PCIe SSD slot?

TiN says:

It is look like PCIE mini slot, but i cant see interconnect to host PCI-E edge connector, nor any kind of hubs there. It's not x1 slot, coz there are def >8 lanes going to GPU. But i think not for SSD, but maybe for WHDI card :D Also addon card seems to have external USB link traced onboard, and internal 2xUSB header (10pin blue conn on top left). So it is some kind of USB addon controller, maybe WiFi, audio etc. So we connect header to motherboard, one USB goes to addon card, second goes to mUSB connector to external bracket.
