    So the first tear down of the MacBook Pro Retina had been posted and it is now more inaccessible than any MBP before it. This is not really a surprise but a confirmation of apples design direction. Reading thru it I noticed the ram is soldered to the board. So when the iMac is redesigned can we expect user upgradable ram to be a thing of the past? I hope not. If so, hopefully we will get a spec bump this year before the new 2013 redesign.

    The same is done on the MBA due to the space constraints. Unless they make the iMac about as thin as the MBPR or MBA, I doubt they'll make it non-upgradeable.
