    So, I have macbook pro 13 inch retina mid 2014, and I kind of run into the problem with storage, and that is that it's not enough. I looked and you can do it for macbooks that are before 2014, but not 2014( I mean to change the ssd for bigger one) Any experience? Thanks

    Third party upgrades only exist for early-2013 and mid-2012 rMBPs (Ivy Bridge).

    Haskell (late-2013 and mid-2014) ones do not have any upgrades available.

    The only way you're going to upgrade your SSD is through ebay with someone selling their SSDs. No one makes a replacement yet for some reason. The only option is when someone pulls the SSDs from their macs and sells them on ebay.

    How likely will the mainstream market catch up to the new Samsung PCIe SSD in the mid 2014 rMBP? Will there be a user replacement market for them in the near future?

    I am considering buying a 13" rMBP with 16gb RAM but I'm not sure whether to get a 128gb SSD or 256gb SSD. It all depends whether I know I can comfortably replace the SSD in the near future for a relatively cheap cost.

    Get the biggest drive your budget allows.
