Apparently it is, according to the FRU videos. There is still some uncertainty about whether it would void the warranty to open the tablet and replace one of the key parts. But it would definitely be very convenient if we could, as it would allow upgrading to 512 GB, and perhaps mount a 3G/4G module for areas unsupported (are they?) with the built-in WWAN module offered with the high-end Helix version.


What FRU videos? Do you have a link?

Hey, at least he uses the standard screen resolution in this one, not the one with the artificial MegaBezel(tm). Looks so much better. At the end he says something like 'the keyboard is like a docking station' (when hooked up to a monitor). That's great, but has there been any sign of an actual docking station / desktop dock?

I heard that too and thought that I kind of disagree with that statement. What I'd expect from a docking station is a good connectivity, which means Ethernet, VGA, HDMI (but OK it has DP which fulfills the same purpose except it needs new wires) and more USB ports. :/

 

By the way, I wonder if the keyboard could be connected to a Bluetooth USB device to connect wireless to the tablet. It could be useful to control the tablet from the couch when it's connected to the TV for instance. Well, that sounds weird I know, and wouldn't be useful so often, especially if WiDI works. Just wondering. :)
