Depends on what level you are looking.  Generically, it is a sequence of blocks, just like a rotating hard drive appears.  Proper ID commands can find out more detailed information on it.

Some computers, like the Macbook Air, have SSD but it is NOT SATA.  It is plugged into an expansion slot.  I have also seen other SSDs that plug into PCI Express slots.
