    I know that you can get the 13 inch MBP with Retina display with 8GB RAM but is it possible to get this with 16GB? I want to use this to run a couple of VMWare images... I know that I can get the 15 inch but that is just a tad heavy compared to what I want to carry around.. I wonder if it is soldered on to the motherboard and not possible.. or will it be available when the new CPUs are announced?

    AFAIK, the retina models, the rams soldered on anyway. If you want ram look at getting the normal 13" models. These I think will take 16gb.

    As far as I know, Mac's are not currently running Haswell processors. Still on the IvyBridge platform.

    Apologies... I should have said that I am hopeful that with the new Haswell processors which should be out in June/July this year, they may provide 16GB of RAM too.. sorry for the confusion..
