it will likely happen in the next refresh as a BTO but it will nto be cheap you will be much better off buying an air with the ram and processor you want and up the ssd on your own OWC has 500 some gb SSD for the AIR but it goes for 1k

They offer it with MBP, so yes. I will higher SSD cap with MBA refresh. It will be 512 GB SSD.

And you will have to pay a lot of greens to get it. Say about 1000 dollars on top of your MBA price.

Doubt it. 512GB still costs too much and the market for such SSD is small. Apple likes to keep things simple and not offer many options.

Apple has offered 512GB SSD in MBPs since April 2010 so that does not mean it will be offered in the MBA.
