    Toshiba just announced a micro-SD with speed as fast as 250 MB/s

    Not sure if my 1st generation retina display MBP can take advantage of it.

    All retina MBPs are equipped with SDXC card reader which connected to USB 3 bus, so yes, your rMBP will be able to take advantage of the card.

    I thought about a 64gb sdxc card without a windows 7 on it to have for when needed. Won't protrude out like a USB stick. Do the new rMBP boot from SD?

    Yeah, you can boot from SD I believe but it can't just be a DMG file. See this link:
