Default wireless on new HP laptop

i just purchased a couple of weeks ago a HP ze4547wm laptop...and on the bottom there is cover for a mini pci slot...i know some models of this laptop have built in wireless where this model does not...what my question is is if i get a wireless mini pci card will it work in this particular model...i have heard that the antenna is already biult into the screen but i cant comfirm or deny that..and of course i called HP and they have no idea if it will work or not..any help would be greatly appreciated

This is what you can do.

Open the MiniPCI cover and look for two small cables just... sticking out, if you see them, they are for the antenna. The MiniPCI wireless card has a place there they get plugged into.

Let us know whats up.
