    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
