I've been trying to figure out what is that Integrated Mobile Broadband - Upgradeable option?
I live in Israel, and I want to buy a sim card from a local provider use on a 3G\4G cellular network.
Will the default (non-upgraded) "Integrated Mobile Broadband - Upgradeable" option enable me to put in the sim card and connect?

Hello and welcome,
"Upgradeable" means that the WWAN antennas and SIM card slot are in place - but not the WWAN radio card.
You would have to add an approved WWAN card or order the laptop with one pre-installed to use that capability.

Thank you for your reply!
In the customization there is only one option for a modem that's about 140$.
That's very expensive and it seems to have a lot of features that I don't require and I'm not even sure it that modem supports 3G, the description is very unintelligible, and I see many [re-sale question about this on the forums.
Is there a cheaper alternative for using 3G\4G?
