The cable was for external use.
The Xbox 360 Core – This was a continuation of the previously made Xbox 360 Arcade which was the original version. It was released in 2007 and only used internal flash memory contrary to the external hard drive that was used in the Arcade. Another significant development was that wireless controllers were adopted but it just had the Xbox Live Arcade games. Compared to the previous this console was very cheap because of not much changes in that there was no extra added hard drive space.
