Despite the lack of a TrackPoint, I’ve gone ahead and pre-ordered a DIY edition. However, I skipped the drive. Not because I have a spare gen4 nvme m.2 drive lying around, but because I’m holding out to source an Opal2 SED.
Wanted to put it out there, because I would order an SED with the laptop if it were an option. Does the UEFI firmware support enabling a boot-time unlock of an SED? Was this skipped for perceived lack of demand, or the lack of gen4 m.2 SEDs?
On the crazy side, I’d like to mutter about u.2 support for some truly fast storage, but I know, it wouldn’t fit in the chassis. Or probably the power envelope.
