You must have researched this, is my understanding right that NFC is rather rare on laptops?
Ok, my POV:
fullHD screen — useless for for such size, dimensions aren't exactly what admin would work with.
^ switch to lower resolution, prefer 3x2 screen(like surface lineup) over 16:9
too many IO ports. And too little airflow.
^ reduce total quantity, avoid wasting space for inputs/outputs handled by type-C kinda dongle
consider ribbon cable/typeC dongles for such inputs
^ avoid turning laptop into stationary machine,
workflow should not be obstructed with HDD case hanging, attached directly to laptop
consider moving cool stuff like COM2 either to front-panel or top(where fingerprint sensor is)
^ "use it as 8 outputs for Bit-bang / GPIO." < consider, how inaccessible these are
led indicators duplicate information, provided on device's screen
^ prefer either customization options or discuss actually meaningful options
for example: internet access(rather than network), VPN status, hotkey "depth", router-mode, etc.
HQ cameras on laptop, designed for users and use-env.s clearly affected by NDA
^ why? windows-hello for admin-device? Nope, consider removing cameras altogether
PCIe x4 is routed outside through this connector. Thus, it's possible to connect an external U.2 (directly) or M.2 type (through an adapter) drives.
There is one cool feature that exists on some IoT boards but lacks on PCs: USB client mode and software defined USB hardware. Adminbook can be used as a CD drive, a keyboard, a mouse or even as a videocard and these devices can be combined into hybrid usb device.
