Hello,

I know that the RAM in RMBP is not user upgradable, but can we upgrade it at the apple store? or it's completed soldered on the motherboard so it can never be upgraded?

Thanks!

It's soldered. The only way to upgrade would be to replace the entire logic board.

No, it's not upgradable at all. Order what you need at the time of purchase.

So will the SSD be upgradable after? I know it has a new attachment or something that is different to current 3rd Parties.

I bought the standard base model retina Macbook pro yesterday with 8gb RAM. Today i'm wondering if i should have got a 16GB upgrade. Do you think i should cancel and order? Will i see a noticeable difference? Any advice is appreciated. :confused:

Everyone always says it, 8gb is enough for most users, and yes the sdd is upgradable. Just keep it and upgrade your hd when you have the money and the time.

OWC will make a kit for the SSD, but it'll still cost an arm and a leg.
