    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.

    Now that i look at it, are those fan outlets/inlets on the left and right sides?:apple:

    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?

    Yes, inlets. They're described in the video.

    It's explained in the video.
    No, it's part of the redesign.

    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):

    This sounds like they may be justifying the proprietary RAM and SSD.
