Buying mac book air online

I'm travelling next month to nyc and i want to buy a Mac book air and send it to the hotel where i'm going to stay...
I just want to know if after a purchase at Apple's online store they send you the invoice by email and this includes the serial number on it
Is not that i dont trust in hotel's employee but i want to make sure that thats mine....
Thnks in advance!

If I recall correctly, the email shows the model number, not the serial number.

The serial number is not in the email, but once it ships you can login to the Apple Store and click "print invoice" for your Macbook and on that invoice it will show the serial number.

Yes... you will want to create a store account, but it does not necessarily have the be the same as your AppleID if you don't want it to be. Although that would make one less thing to remmember.

Just to be safe, you can buy from the Apple online store and ship to a store. You can even schedule the pickup. This applies to many of the BTO products as well.
