    I am buying the 13" i5 and I am leaning towards getting it with the 128 GB "Apple" SSD.

    The question I have is if a BTO SSD is a normal 2,5" drive that you can switch as easy as a regular HDD?

    I assume it is, but thought that all the smart people here would know...

    ...and yes. I know I could get larger and quicker storage cheaper and install it myself. I just feel I will grant myself the luxury of unpacking the MBP and hit the pavement running instead of opening it up the first thing I do.

    The reason I ask is that in the future I might want to replace the SSD with a better/larger/quicker one when the SSD prices has gone down in a couple of years.

    The Macbook Air is the only model with funky "stick" form factor.

    so did you go ahead and order the 13in i5 with the 128 SSD. Will that make a huge difference with everything.

    thinking of doing that with either the i5 or i7 13in. dont want the 15in or larger mbp.

    No, not yet.
    I might wait for the first reviews of the 13" i5 MBP before ordering.
