is the dedicated graphics in the tablet portion of the laptop? So the dock is just keyboard & the extra hdd space?

my educated guess (lol) is graphics, cpu, flash storage, battery is in the tablet while the dock has an extra battery and usb / audio ports

Dedicated graphics? There is none. It uses the Intel HD 4000 that is integrated into the CPU.

After doing a little more research the rumor is that the 14" version will be the only one that will likely have dedicated nVidia graphics. However, no mention was made as to which nvidia graphics chip it is supposed to be. Using a nVidia graphic chip will likely drain the battery a lot quicker than the Intel HD 4000 so I would assume it makes more sense to only use it in notebook form while plugged into an outlet.

It's a really intriguing piece of hardware, but I would likely wait for the Haswell refresh of this product.
