    Hello, can the SSD inside the rMBP 15" 2012 be taken out and connected to another Mac externally?

    Why would you do this? And yes, yes you can.

    Connect to another Mac though Thunderbolt or a Thunderbolt to Firewire adapter and hold on the option key while booting.

    Yes, OWC sells the enclosure for the SSDs used in MBA/rMBP, look up OWC Envoy.
