Additional, larger HD options would be nice. Is it a 9mm or 12mm bay height?
Does it take a bare drive or require an expensive hard to get replacement sled?
A good Linux laptop would allow a quick/easy drive swap to experiment with different distributions without putting a working boot layout at risk to alpha/beta quality releases.
Dis/re-assembly with teeny-tiny screws for swapping drives is such a pain in the petuti.
In such case as screws which mysteriously evaporate when they reach ground level, are half a dozen spare screws of each size for the entire laptop provided or can they be added for a $1 to the initial order?
A spare drive with a bootable TAILS partition would be a double plus.
