    Is it it possible to upgrade my SSD storage in my MacBook pro retina. Mid 2012. Am I able to do this myself? Or does Apple have to do it? If so, what kind of figure $ would I be looking at. Thanks?

    Yes, that model is upgradeable Transcend has SSDs for that model MBP.

    Apple won't do it, you'll have to do it yourself, though.

    If it is a Mid 2012 model then uses standard SATA based SSD's so no problem upgrading the Storage to a larger SSD.

    In terms of cost then depends on what size SSD you buy!

    No, it won't.

    Not unless you go out and buy some kind of USB to mSATA connector (AFAIK, the port used in the rMBP isn't a standard mSATA port, so good luck with that) and use winclone or similar software clone over your bootcamp partition.
