Here's a photo of the inside of my HP EliteBook 8770w:

HP8770w what is next to mSATA
Check out the slot where I put the three red question marks — what's it for? The gold connectors at the top look remarkably similar to the gold connectors at the top of the mSATA slot, but I don't think that the laptop supports two mSATA drives, although I could be wrong about that. Anyone know for sure what that slot is for? Thanks much, Joe
