    How are the upgrade possibilities of our nMPs coming on.

    I read of possibilities and actualities but no absolutes yet (OWC SSD excepted).

    So if you know let us all know how, what and cost.

    Thank you

    The ram is obviously upgradeable but you can upgrade the CPU as well.

    The SSD is technically upgradeable since you can buy a used apple SSD from eBay and swap it. There was someone on these forums with a 1 TB MacBook Air with the SSD swapped from a MacBook Pro, so a nMP SSD upgrade would work. 3rd party SSDs would also work, except that you lose official trim support and need a hack to work.

    The GPU is custom to this machine (one GPU has the SSD slot) so I doubt you will find anything other than the official ones on eBay.
