Hi Slowride Good to see you here! Welcome to the community.
I'm sure @Xiao_Han didn't mean to intentionally offend you. We're all here in the same boat!
That boat has a lot of different cultures and people, who'se native language is not english. That creates a lot of room for misunderstandings etc so we all have to give each other the benefit of the doubt
While your idea is interesting and well argumented for, having an 1TB SSD is not currently an option due to the technical feasibility. To make the product look as exceptional as it is and fit that large battery inside, we had to go for a more rare 2242 form factor SSD, of which we currently didn't find technically feasible 1TB offerings available.
If such an option becomes available, we'll be sure to introduce it! But it wont be for 100 USD, which, even if it was the bill of materials-cost would not offer any markup for the company. We need the markup as we need to cover our overheads to provide support, customer service, warranty, pay salaries, develop new devices. This would be true for even a non-profit operation.
p.s. The V is actually an international product, made an international community. The company Eve-Tech is registered in Finland
