I have just purchased a 15" Macbook Pro w/ Retina and I decided to do a clean re-install of OS X 10.8.3.  After I created a bootable USB drive I entered the Disk Utility program and say this extra disk at the bottom named OS X Base System.  I have attached a photo to show what I am talking about.  I would like to know if this is the recovery partition and can I remove it?  I am not sure if this is embedded on the SSD or if it is a seperate ssd with the recovery that cannot be touched.  Thank you.photo.JPG
