20. Has mSATA connector

If a motherboard has an mSATA connector, you can connect an mSATA SSD drive to it that acts as a cache between the motherboard and your primary hard drive. This gives increased performance when using a traditional hard disk drive (HDD) instead of an SSD as your primary storage device.
