For those workers that require usage of the tablet for long periods of time.
Robin Seiler, the corporate vice president of program management for devices at Microsoft, spoke in an interview with Verge. He explained, “We changed the inside quite substantially,” He went on to say “It actually required us to flip the internals in order for us to put the SSD here, so when we did that we also updated the TDM (Thermal Design Model) to create more space for a larger battery size.”
The removable SSD has the same function as the Surface Pro X and the Surface Laptop 3. Meaning businesses are able to swap drives out for reparability.
