If the maxed-out 11" is the "ultimate", what is the slang for the $999 version? Save the derisive comments, I love my cheapo 11". :p

If I had that and were describing it I'd use one of the following:

Stock.
Regular.
Bog-standard.

That's how I described my base 13" MBP, before I started adding bits.

if it makes them feel better people could go with

Optimum resale version :D

Another term people use for the ultimate is "maxed-out". So maybe the other end of the features-spectrum is:

minned-out
