I’ve been hearing a couple of things about the expansion card I wish it could be clarified or with the newest software and hardware updates.
-The expansion cards drain the battery (as expected) but even not during usage or sleep (reddit post on live testing on HDMI expansion card).
- USB-C and USB-A expansion cards are more complicated than just ports and (see above) drain power when not used?
- Are storage card expansion cards like thumb drives (USB flash drives) in the system or like hard drives?
- What would be the preferred choice between a larger NVMe storage (say 1TB) or a smaller NVMe storage (say 250GB) with a 1TB storage drive?
I don’t particularly mind the battery issue, my current laptop is such a power drain and I’ve used it for so long I’m used to getting glued to a power outlet. But since there’s no “empty” expansion cards yet, as some have requested, I’m either going to run 4 cards at the same time or walk around “naked”.
