I just sold my 3 year old MBP and want to get a base 13" MPB. I'm probably going to let Apple bump the RAM from 2GB to 4GB. With my education discount, it's only $90 more which isn't bad since buying 4GB is arounf $70 from Crucial or OWC and I don't need the memory I remove. That being said, if I buy from the Apple store they can take a couple of days to install the memory (according to them) or I can order from Apple.com as a BTO. Does anyone know how long it takes Apple.com to prepare and ship the order? Do they ship UPS ground? I want a larger HD at some point, but I'd rather do that myself. The trade-offs are that the Apple Store I'll get it sooner. If I order from Apple.com I get a better choice of "Free" printers. I found most of the printers they sell in the Apple store for $99.00 are junk with poor reviews. Just looking for thoughts or opinions.
