All fixed now. All pics are from the current 2018 model.
I’ve updated the guide now to make this clearer. Torx TR6, Torx T10 and Torx T5 is what’s needed.
Yes, you can mix and match the module sizes in just about any Mac, so you could even have 4GB +32GB
Update: now with pics of the RAM cage.
Since I don’t actually own this model, some of the pics are from the 2014 model where I could see that they looked very similar to some of the initial teardown videos showing up online. Step 2 and 8 are of the actual 2018 model. Hopefully someone who actually owns the 2018 version can post some extra steps with pics of the cage and how to remove it.
My previous reply was based on the thought that the SSD in this laptop was a Samsung SM951. I could have sworn that was in the teardown previously, but maybe it was too early in the morning :)
Since the model installed is the Samsung PM851 - a standard SATA M.2 80mm SSD, then another one like the Transcend mentioned will do just fine, as well as the Crucial M550 or MX200 M.2 when they are available.
