Forgive me if I'm not locating this info elsewhere...

I'm seriously looking at a current model 13" MacBook Pro. One of my gripes with the Air and 12" MacBook is that the SSD and RAM can't be upgraded.

The bottom-level 13" would be great if I could add RAM and a bigger SSD. Does this model have sockets to make that possible?

Thanks in advance

Short answer No and Yes (kind of). The RAM is soldered in so it is NOT upgradeable. The SSD is a Apple only connector and no other 3rd party companies are making them. The only way to upgrade is to find one pulled from another Mac.

The non-retina model of the 13" Macbook Pro can have upgraded RAM and SSD, but it's a 2012 computer.
It's theoretically possible to upgrade the SSD in the retina Macbook Pro models, but nobody is selling one that's compatible.

Thanks, folks. Sounds like I should buy configured as I need. But as to SSDs...

looks like that might be an option.
No that will not work, unless you changed you original parameters from "current" to 2012 or an early 2013. The "current model 13" MacBook Pro" is a 2015.
