My new Toshiba has this port among others. What is its function. I haven't heard about this one before.

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.
