I'm no tech whiz, but I've got to admit it was nice having the option to upgrade my MacBook Pro early 2011 RAM (too bad it crashed from a GPU failure :|) While I'm okay with the new 13" rMBP having 8GB of RAM and the flash drive, it makes me a bit uncomfortable for the future. I'm not a photo editor or video editor, so I suppose I really shouldn't complain.. But eh, I guess it's a comforting thought to know "Hey, at least I can do this if I want to" in regards to upgrading some parts. Heck even those new JetDrives that were posted on the front page of MacRumors look really awesome, but they're not compatible with the late 2013 models. Why did Apple take this direction? Was it ever explained on their behalf?
