[Shane Ross] "And no, no slots. Only TWO drive slots for M2 SSD drives. "

Correct. That's my concern. It appears that the intention is to mount drives into an MPX module, like Promise is planning to release. Therefore, I would presume that if you wanted to add your own raw drive(s), you would have to purchase the MPX chassis from Apple. Potentially there will be third-party MPX modules available. And, would you even be able to add a 3.5" spinning hard drive or will you be limited to 2.5" SSDs or only NVMe drives?

[Shane Ross] "That we all want external drives for everything!"

They have to justify Thunderbolt 3 somehow ☺

[Shane Ross] "What's wrong with allowing for 4 internal drives?"

In fact, if you used the optical drive bays, you could do up to 6 drives on the older Mac Pros.
