    Hi.
    Trying to decide which to buy. Must have a removable operative system, either by pulling its solid state drive or hard drive out.
    So another operative system can be installed after inserting a new-blank memory SSD. No problem if need to open case/pull screws out for the change.
    If comes with Windows, I want to run only Linux. And able to go back at a certain future if needed. NO dual boot.
    Ideally, about 10 inch screen, detachable keyboard, and cool running. (no fan). Perhaps am asking too much...? :oops:

    Hello,

    Looking at the desciption you are giving, you will likely have to go for a laptop, as tablets do not have removable disks.
    If you want to use linux on the laptop, have a look at the following sites for the compatibility:

    You might want to look at the 11" Macbook Air. I've heard it's pretty easy to change out the SSD drive. It does not have a detachable keyboard, though.
