Trimslice does have SATA. It is oddly placed under the board so it is hard to see and they put a small Sandisk SSD in the SATA slot. Looks like it is SATA 1, but I'd need to dig into the specs to be certain. You'll have to remove at least one of the panels to get at the SATA ports but that is part of the fun isn't it? :-)
