I'm only theorizing of course but it's an inevitable thing as these things get thinner as I mentioned above. Usb 3.0 / thunderbolt can make this moot but then you have to drag around an external.
    I would be surprised and disappointed by a soldered hard drive in the PC world. What I expect will become common is M2 SATA or more likely NvME. An M2 drive is approximately the size of two sticks of chewing gum and are commonly available in 1 TB capacities. Of course the PC's motherboard must have the appropriate connector and BIOS support.

    Edit: Holy Cow! I was browsing Amazon and Inland (of all manufacturers) is advertising a 4 TB M2 2280. Inland drives are typically value propositions. I have a couple Inland SATA drives, they're middling performers but seem reliable.
