“There are two basic versions of the original Aspire One – both use the same motherboard, and both support a PATA interface and a SATA interface. The SDD version features the same ZIF connector found on 1.8? PATA hard drives, but no SATA connector. The HDD version features a standard 2.5? SATA hard drive connector and a modified casing, but no ZIF connector…

Since I replaced the slower 8 GB SSD with a faster 60 GB hard drive on the PATA interface and the SATA interface was still unused, I decided to add an external eSATA connector to my Aspire One :)”
