This seems like the ideal Ultrabook for El Capitan, I hope Wifi is easily replaceable and maybe adding some storage extension of some sort:

At a $499 start price, I think it's worth it.  The big question to me is whether you will need a USB hard drive or if there is an mSATA slot on the motherboard.

The HD515 is listed here:

Let's hope it will work by injecting the ID :)

It hasn't been released yet.

 

Core M with HD515 should work fine (2016 rMB uses it). The real question is if the SSD & WiFi card are replaceable. Hopefully coolstar or someone similar gets SeaBIOS or TianoCore working on these.
