Can I upgrade my flash storage?

I just bought a 13" MacBook Pro with Retina Display about maybe 2 weeks, so I'm not exactly sure on what model that would be.

I purchased the most basic option, but totally underestimated the amount of storage I had. I was wondering if I could upgrade my flash storage from the 128GB (or whatever it is) to maybe something like 400-500GB.

Most of my storage belongs strictly to my music. I have 2 external hard drive (one from my 2011 MacBook Pro, and another) so I know I can just run my music from there to my iTunes to play music, but I feel it will be a nuisance if I want to bring my laptop anywhere, without my externals.

Just looking for some advice, thanks.

Here's the IFIXIT MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display Late 2013 Teardown so you get an idea what your system look like opened up.

Presently Apple is the only source for the M.2 PCIe blade type SSD units used in the newest MacBook Pro 13" systems.

If you have an early '13 or older model then you can go here: OWC - SSD upgrades

Sorry no, This one uses a different connector. Note the two blades in Apples and three in this one.

What about these? Plexor recently released these? Are they too long to fit?
