I'd go with the 256GB version to save few bucks, but the premium anti-glare etched glass is a must. Otherwise this device is useless (:>)
you can upgrade the m.2 to a bigger size although there is no telling how hard and or how much of it you need to take apart to get to it though, also as for the screen I do think there will be 3rd party etched glass screens to pop in it.

I never use any kind of screen protectors because they're all utter shit tbh. Every single one of the screen protectors I used in the past had negative impact on the image quality of the screen. Also many of them seem to be even bigger fingerprint magnets than the screen itself, looking like you had a grilled chicken lying on your screen after every single use. Therefore I decided to spend extra money to use the original screen, even tough it's kinda overpriced imo.
I'm also not into preserving mint condition on my electronic devices. I buy them to use them, I don't care if they get any scratches after a while.

As to the replaceable m.2, that will be interesting. I hope it won't require too much fiddling to upgrade. Unfortunately, only 42mm modules are possible, at least according to Gaben.

The only good screen protectors I've had so far are from Hori for the touch screens on 3DS, Wii U, and DS (where I'd say they're explicitly mandatory so you can throw them out once they're scratched up from the styluses and apply new ones) and a tempered glass protector from dbrand for my Switch Lite. The Hori ones are fairly cheap plastic ones but completely preserve the image quality, the dbrand one is pretty expensive but makes the Switch Screen appear like a higher quality smart phone screen, and it's coated against fingerprints.

But those are the only two brands I'd personally trust, most other protectors I've seen or tried are as terrible as you've experienced them. Finger prints and worse colors galore.

Got it for one thing mostly (indies and all those hentai games).

I have a feeling configuring the buttons will be a pain though.

I was talking about replacing the screen in the cheaper steam decks with a 3rd party etched glass screen not a screen protector, but since you did bring it up iv always had good experiences with glass screen protector.

You mean completely replace the front glass? Not sure it will be that easy (and worth the effort and risks). Replacing the backcover of my phone, which is glued to the body, was a major pain in the ass.

I've had the typical tempered glass screen protectors you find on eBay for not very much money, on various gadgets, and they're... alright... certainly protect the screen well (I had one shatter on impact and the original screen underneath was still perfect) but hard to get placed flawlessly and maybe not optically perfect. But when I replaced the one on my Switch I splurged a few times the price of those usual ones on a "premium" version from some known accessories brand name (might have been OVIO), and it was well worth the extra - it has strong glue that somehow pulls it completely flat against the screen and pushes all the bubbles out without you having to try and drive them all out by hand, and optically and in terms of touch sensitivity it seems pretty perfect.

TLDR: I think good screen protectors exist but likely cost more.
