What is it? I know SSD is on the board but how about the memory?
On board also neither are user upgradable
Source? I don't think the SSD is confirmed yet.
i wanna know this too $180 for extra 8 GB ?
It doesn't look like the microsata connector used by the rest of the PC industry. Even if the SSDs are replaceable, it will probably cost you as much as buying a whole new Mac to get these proprietary chips.
I remember Ifixit sells whole upgrade kits with connectors, screws, tools and everything else you need to upgrade the proprietary Mac minis. I imagine them doing the same, AS LONG AS the SSD drive is not soldered onto the board? Can someone confirm this? I called the Apple line but they couldn't tell me.
SSD is definitely not soldered to the board.
The form factor, however, is different than the standard 2.5" SSD and even slightly different than the MacBook Air blade-style SSD. It'll be a while before we see upgrades but they're a removable part. It's up to third party manufacturers to pump these new size parts out. OWC did this for the Air pretty quickly.
The RAM/Memory, however, is soldered to the board and I highly recommend 16GB if you're planning on keeping it a while.
