As long as they sell a brick with a PCIE slot in it that an off the shelf card can fit in. I have a Razor Core X EGPU and while you can fit any card you want into it and the power supply looks like a standard power supply that can be upgraded/replaced, it is roughly 50% the size of a normal computer case and it weighs twice as much.Yeah, if we are able to upgrade GPU and RAM from off the shelf stuff we can get from Micro Center or Fry's would be great. That would imply easily accessible PCI-e slots and DIMM slots. That's what just about everyone is hoping for. I don't know if Apple will give that to users.
If they take the Lego bricks approach, there will probably proprietary connectors involved. If 3rd parties develop and sell adaptors, it will still be better than the MacPro6,1 situation where the entire card is a proprietary form factor.
I think room for lots of storage nowadays is much less of a concern. I know that I rely on my NAS for storage a lot more now and 10GbE is fast and reliable.
