FUD Zilla reports 13 of MSI's Gaming, Entertainment and Professional series notebooks will get a handy eSATA/USB combo connector.
The new connector is very handy, as you can plug either an eSATA or USB-based device inyo the same hole. This leaves room for manufacturers not to lose the third USB slot if they want to include the eSATA port on their notebooks. This is also handy if the manufacturer wants to include the eSATA port on smaller notebooks, again without losing any other connector.

The MSI's Gaming series GX720, GT735, GX620, GX630, GX400, Entertainment series EX720, EX620, EX630, EX300 and Professional series PR621, PX620, PX200, PR420 will all have this combo connector.
