Please forgive my ignorance, but what does the acronym BTO represent?

BTO = Build To Order

Truthfully, I've not seen any "BTO" designations on these rigs posted. These are all CTO's (Configured To Order) so the BTO designation is a misnomer. I'm not even sure there is such a thing, unless abbreviations vary depending on the country you reside in?

If you ordered it 2 hours before me, that would have been at 12:05P Pacific time, right?

Would you do some benchmarking tests like xBench when you get it? I really want to see the speed of the NAND Flash vs. SSDs.

Also, write up a review if you have time. I cannot wait for these numbers to come in, as I have high hopes for both of these MBAs.

I ordered mine around 11:00 CST, yesterday. Still saying it's not shipped, and it's giving me an estimate of 3 to 5 days before it does. It's like waiting for a mail-order child haha.

Ordered an 11.6" with just a ram upgrade.
