Look under the left fan. You can see that there is a separate board, very similar to the Macbook Air, containing the SSD:



There will probably be aftermarket versions available just like there are for the Air.

Good catch, there is also a visible screw to the left of the SSD modules.

I don't want to delve too off topic here but...

So that's the new fan-design apple was talking about? The 'classic' MBP wouldn't have happened to adopt it as well right?

It is not soldered but may be a proprietary pin connection (kind of like they did with the Airs).

What makes me nervous is what the say in the video (at the 3:00 mark):

By not purchasing standard parts, but by designing and engineeriing components from the ground up...
This sounds like they may be justifying the proprietary RAM and SSD.
