Can someone help me identify this slot?

It's on the motherboard of my Acer 3935 and i've used an converter attachment of a 2.5" Go Flex External Portable HDD to compare the sizes.

I think it's a harddrive slot but what type of drive (SSD etc)

Any 2.5" SATA drive should fit in there (except the latest 1TB drives as they are slightly thicker).

It's a micro SATA connector for 1.8" drives.

Here is a pic for you.

.....love the pic itz hilarious!

1.8" SSD normally command big prices but crucial's 1.8" 64gb C300 is not bad value at all. Remember 7% quidco too.
