    Hey all. I have a 2014 rMBP and I think I know the answer to this question but i figured it was worth a shot to ask. I have a 256GB SSD in this hog right now and would like to upgrade to 500GB. Is the HD soldered in these machines or is it possible to upgrade? Do I need to take it to an Apple store if it is possible? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Thanks for the help everyone. After visiting the links posted, even if I could upgrade, $700 for a 512GB SSD I might as well buy another MB. LOL, oh-well. Thanks again for the help, greatly appreciated

    Nobody knows, and my best bet is it will never come.

    It's been well over a year since the PCIe blades debuted in Haswell Macs, and there's still no sign of any upgrades.

    It didn't that take OWC long to come up with the mSATA blades for the Ivy Bridge Macs after they debuted. If it's taken this long for the PCIe blades and there's still no sign of it, my best bet is that Apple probably threatened to sue them if they tried to copy the proprietary Apple blade form factor.
