It would be nice if they made things out of "Standardized" form factors, chasis, and parts.

Things like:
LapTop MoBo = Nano-ITX Form Factor
GFX Card = MXM Form Factor
Daughter Cards = __ Standardized connector.
etc.

It would also be nice if they were not limited to Intels parts as AMD is becoming more popular and uses less power. The main problem with the laptop is always cooling, so it would have made more sense to make a Ryzen version first and deal with the lower TDP.
It is overall not a difficult venture to make, all parts are modular and can be slid in and out of the old Laptop types, so long as they have the appropriate ports. Laptops had interchangable graphics so long as they had MXM port etc... But cooling is the Big issue.... I expect these laptops to be a little more Chunky in size to allow for some different heat-pipes and fans.

But this is welcomed and hopefully will be a success (if they dont over charge).
