Hey guys, There was a bit of interest on hearing about what happened to people with failures of their SSDs on the mid-2012 Mac. Below is what happened, your mileage will definitely vary. Got diagnosed, was told I needed to replace the SSD. Got a phone call a day or so later saying that there was a major constraint company-wide on the part, so they'd simply replace my laptop. Went in today and got my replacement. Mine was mid-2012 CTO, the only change being an upgrade in RAM to 8 gb (still base level processor and 128 gb SSD). Since they didn't have that in stock, they gave me the fully loaded version (512 gb SSD, 8 gb RAM, updated processor). To make it even better, I got the mid-2013 version instead of the mid-2012 version. I'm sure YMMV, but it looks like Apple will be doing (at least locally in Canada, but probably most places) replacement for an equal-or-better model of the current 2013 edition. Best of luck to all!
