Still non-upgradeable RAM and special order SSD

RAM will be soldered on the mainboard and so you need to decide how much memory you want from the day one and forget about ever upgrading. The base model will start at 4GB and will cost arm and a leg to up to 8GB, and forget about 16 even if it is possible as it may cost you soul and more.
SSD - same story but may have some upgrade choice in future.

on a second thought - i might be being too harsh on Apple. This essentially is a tablet but in a notebook form. How many people expect option and get to upgrade their memory or SSD in tablet? Possibly none. So this may be just a change from how much options people will have in the future in terms of upgrade to allow a "better" form factor, or a mid-step until the PC world comes up with a new form-factor for RAM and SSDs that allow for upgradeability.
