    If I want to upgrade the RAM and harddrive in a new macbook pro or mac pro, can it be done in the Apple Store? Or would they have to special order it?

    Someone else will be able to answer your main question....but I just wanted to make sure that you know it is fairly simple to install your own ram in either of those computers (and significantly cheaper).

    I was under the impression you could only buy BTO machines from the online store, but I'm not sure. The Geniuses will install new RAM on a machine you already own, though.

    You can get a RAM upgrade at an Apple store. As Drile says, it is easy and cheaper to do it yourself. Other than RAM, the stores generally only carry the stock configurations.
