According to Everymac (http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/ma...) this would not be possible for late 2013 15" retina models, with PCIe based SSD. So, will these steps also apply to that model? Just want to be really sure!

I read the whole article, and from what you have written i hope you meant about this part.

"Specifically, the "Mid-2012" and "Early 2013" models use a 6 Gb/s SATA-based SSD whereas the "Late 2013" and "Mid-2014" models use a PCIe 2.0-based SSD. These SSD modules are neither interchangeable nor backwards compatible."

If so it means you can not use an SSD meant for "Mid-2012" and "Early 2013" for a laptop of "Late 2013" and "Mid-2014" or vice-versa, they are still removable and replaceable but please do make sure that the replacement is intended for the model that you have.

I have 1 TB solid state drive and I need more space if you can believe it. Hate working with externals. Is there a 2TB SSD even available for the mac that I could replace on my late 2013 15" MBP retina?

Samsung makes a 2tb and 4tb internal SSD. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B078DPCY3T/ref...

Make sure you’re backing up your system to either an external drive or backblaze since you’re storing so many valuable files. Keeping it all in once place is an easy way to lose it should your drive fail or your computer need to be reset. I’ve lost all the info off my mac twice due to it needing to be reset at apple.

I wish I had read this BEFORE getting a hybrid 2TB replacement drive. I had no idea an SSD was so thin. There is simply no space for even a laptop Hybrid drive. I cleaned my computer a lot though, so all was not lost - and I have an external bootable backup.
