    I called the Apple Store and they said they could upgrade the 8GB to 16GB in the store while you wait. So is the RAM not soldered onto the mobo? I thought it was? Be nice if it's not :)

    It is soldered. You sure they were referring to the Retina model, not the regular Pro?

    From the iFixit.com Retina MacBook Pro Teardown:

    My guess is that the store you talked to thought you were talking about the older MBPs. The new ones are not upgradable, only web-configurable. Sorry.

    Yep, I specifically said the "Retina MBP." My guess is that the Apple employee just doesn't know the details yet. Oh well.

    I'd think it was this, then anything else. I'm surprised by some of the things these sales state.
