    so i just made a substantial amnt of money via online poker and ive decided to buy my mom the new iMac for her birthday.....now i was wondering, if i go to my apple retail store, can they get me the 17inch model w/ a 1gb upgrade for me there, or will i have to wait a few days? im debating whether to have it shipped to me at college with the upgrade and then bring it home with me for her, or just pick it up at the store when i am home...thanks

    I think that you have to wait for build-to-order options, but I could be wrong.

    im pretty sure that if you want to upgrade the ram you will have to wait a while for them to instal it,you might be better off just ordering one off the internet

    Somtimes they have upgraded macs already at the store, Try going to a store close to you, if your in college, she could be controlling your credit card, and watching what you spend, if 1,300 dollars comes up from Apple.... she could get suspiscious.
    Yes, i've had expierences... :cool:
