When you publish more info on the new MacBook Pro be sure and tell us what a delight it is to try to upgrade the RAM.
About as delightful as the previous models, would be my guess. Remove a few screws, off comes the back panel, pull out the old RAM, add in the new, replace the screws.
Ok, so I just read that the RAM is soldered to the logic board.... soooooo, that sucks. Considering the hardware would likely support 32GB of ram, limiting users to Apple RAM of 16GB seems kind of, well, lame.
On the bright side, at least upgrading to the 16GB at purchase isn't the huge hit to the wallet it used to be. Still, it's twice as expensive as after-market RAM runs...
Money talks... maybe Apple will hear something to make them change their attitude about soldering RAM to the logic board for future iterations...? Yeah, right.
