Both are there: Internal CF-card connector and a 3.5" IDE/Atapi connector.

The CF card connector is internal and it is not accessible from the outside. Only the 3.5" connector is accessible from the outside, along with a highspeed expansion port.

I am aware that some people are hoping to use the CF card slot as a "general data exchange port" with the PC, but I would like to discourage anyone from doing that. Since the CF card is used as a harddrive replacement, it should also be treated like a harddrive. Exchanging data with the PC should be done the "traditional" way, for example through network, serial or floppy disks. In addition to that, I'm thinking of a low-cost addon that allows exchanging data with a PC.
