What are the chances of seeing a Fusion drive in a future rMBP?

    I love the idea of having the best of both worlds - the capacity of an HDD and the speed of an SSD. But I want a MBP, not an iMac, and I'm wondering whether people think there's any chance of Apple cramming a Fusion drive into one of their rMBP's, say, next year? Is it just too small to fit?

    Zilch. There isn't any space for a platter based HDD as it currently stands.

    Maybe in the cMBP if they keep those around.

    Close to zero. There's barely enough space in there for another NAND storage module, let alone a full 2.5" HDD.

    So, unless Apple decides to make rMBP thicker, or cut off a portion of precious battery just to accomodate that one feature, it ain't happening.

    Well, I think is unanimous then.

    People, don't immediately go ga-ga over anything new please. With the falling price of solid states and your devices on-line full time (u can have tons of storage on your file servers and cloud if u don't mind paying), a hybrid storage system is just a stop gap.
