    Somebody in another post brought up a good point. If the new MBP uses flash memory like the Air will it also be non replaceable?

    While I like everything about these new announcements I can't imagine a MBP with a non removable memory.

    Though there haven't been any announcements, they are just rumours and hopes/expectations.
    If the 2012 MBP employs the same flash storage as the 2010/2011 MBA models, there will probably bee a way to replace it too, as OWC/MacSales offers bigger capacity replacements for the flash storage of the 2010 and 2011 MBAs.

    The flash memory in the MBA is replaceable. It isn't soldered on, it pulls out of a slot on the logic board.

    For all we know at this point the "flash memory to make it boot faster" is in all reality a switch to SSD.

    Certainly wouldn't be the first time I've seen a drive referred to as memory.

    Yes, no way that they meant that flash memory would be used for RAM.

    The question is whether there's a small SSD paired with a normal HDD or if it's going to be SSD only.
