I know the RAM is soldered, and therefore, not able to be upgraded...but is the SSD in the same boat? or is that upgradeable?

It's not soldered, but there's nothing available yet to upgrade it to, other than through Apple. That may change in time, but my guess is it won't be a user-upgradable option, meaning you'd have to void your warranty to do so.

SSD is not soldered-in. It is replaceable. Just that there are no non-Apple replacement parts elsewhere yet.

Actually, I wouldn't even bother trying to water down the message with the addition of the word "yet".

Long term availability of this custom proprietary SSD module is suspect at best. It is as good as saying "They are simply not available", period.
