    The SD card reader on mine does not show up under any usb hub, I would assume that it is not usb.

    Cheers for that so it looks like the card reader is attached to the pci-e bus which means it supports much faster speeds than the 60mb/sec pre 2012 models are limited too.

    Apple switched from using USB to PCI-E for the SD card reader a while back, I don't know how far back, maybe a few revisions. All 2012 models should be on the PCI-E bus though :)

    Kinda related to this topic, would anyone be able to recommend a decent microSDXC card? Looking for a 64GB+ to use in an SD adapter initially for storing the odd music/video file and documents.

    Best one on the market right now is the SanDisk 64GB Mobile Ultra MicroSDXC Class 10 UHS-1.

    It's also the only class 10 64gb microSDXC, as far as I know.

    Beware that SanDisk released a while ago a almost identical class 6 microSDXC, be sure to get the latest Class 10 UHS-1, which is way faster.

    Can the micro SD card be used on the rMBP without the SD adapter to avoid it protuding from the body? If so, can someone share a picture on how it would look?

    Thanks,

    You need some kind of adapter. Minidrive is available on amazon. There are others. Do a search you will see discussions. 64GB in a minidrive sanded down here:
