It's a Smart Card reader, probably a security feature as that is a "business" laptop.

I have that in my Dell at work. What I want to know is where I can get a smart card to work with it.

Not all smart cards are created equal. You need to know what smart cards will work with your Dell. I cant help you there but if you have an HP i can ... Ha!


Call Dell and they will tell you what kind of cards you can use.

I use my smart card with HP protectools it adds that extra layer of security.
