    500gb dock

    I know they just recently became available, just a few questions:

    Is the drive built into the dock?

    If so, do they sell It separately?

    I bought the 32gb one without knowing about the 500gb

    Not normally, but you could see about getting one on places like eBay or a reseller known as "Asus Parts"...

    If I may ask ... I bought the 32GB + 500 GB two days ago, and just out of curiousity: Is it possible to replace the 500gb HDD with a different one, ie. an SSD?

    You can open the dock and there is a regular 7mm hdd inside, which could be replaced by a ssd.
    Just remember that the dock is connected with an usb-like connection so you will NOT reach the ssd's optimal speeds.

    + less noise (no moving parts)
    + maybe less power usage
    + slight increase of speed (much slower than an internal sata ssd)
    - expensive for only small benefits

    I've replaced HDDs with SSDs in other laptops to save on battery use - much lower batter use than a HDD. As @Blob suggests, since you're not going to get SSD performance you can buy a cheaper (slower) SSD

    you better off maybe get a micro sd card 64 - 120GBs, cheaper and you dont have to always depend on the dock for extra storage - i know its not 500GB but even if you go with SSD, a 500 one will cost you a lot
