Is the SSD upgradeable in the 2017 version?
the 2016 was soldered to the logic board...is the 2017 still soldered?
模具型号A1707。于2017年6月上市，这台MacBook Pro的特征为配有Kaby Lake处理器，可升级至2.9GHz、可动态超频至3.9GHz四核英特尔酷睿i7处理器。
Sadly both 13" & 15" Touch Bar models are soldered!
All of the Retina models have soldered RAM only the older non-Retina models have upgradable RAM. The newer Touch Bar (2016 & 2017) systems SSD storage is now soldered as well.
Rumor has it a Pro's MacBook Pro will be coming out which is hoped to have upgradable RAM & storage but we'll need to wait and see if Apple got the message when they intro'ed the late 2016 model and got a good scolding by the working Pro's who need more RAM, upgradable storage and USB-A ports.

dose it work ?
Hey Dan! I know that the RAM on the newer MacBooks are soldered, but do you know if there is any options at the moment for replacement drives such as 512GB for the MacBook Pro 2017 'Function Key' model? I mean if I bought the Macbook Pro 256GB 'Function Key' 2017 model would it be possible to upgrade the SSD? For example to 512GB.
+1 apple is no poweruser company anymore. they are not fueled by creativity anymore, but by corporate greed. think different was the slogan that stood for apple. innovative and creative was what most people associated with apple. now we have failing keyboards, soldered hdds and ram and prices inflated. proprietary connectors everywhere so we can create more and more waste mountains, while apple acts like they are actually environmentally friendly.
here in the comments you have "power users" like jane with 2gb ram macbook airs that tell us everything is fine ;-) that is exactly what apple has become - mainstream.
i am thinking about switching back to windows again and linux. i dont want to spend 2000+ on a notebook with soldered ram and hdd.
I have done just that i went back to a windows pc in my case i went to a gaming pc as it came with 32g of ram and a ryzon 9 processor it only came with a 500g ssd but i can upgrade that to a larger one when i need to all for 2800 aud a mac with simler specs would have cost me around 4000 or a bit more with no upgrade ability
