    Hello everyone.
    I will be in London on friday for a short time, about half a day.
    So I want to get the new macbook pro 15" high end from there. I would like to get hi res anti-glare screen and 500GB HD 7200rpm instead of the default 750GB 5400rpm.

    Would it be available in the apple store for pick-up? I remember reading somewhere that if you want those customization, you might have to order online.

    Thank you
    p.s. this will be my first macbook, I am extremely excited! :)

    I'm pretty sure you'll need to order that online I'm afraid. Could give the store a call in advance I guess..

    Try the Covent Garden store. Remember, it's the biggest Apple Store in the world :cool::apple:

    The following are what they offered for sale when I went to get one and they said it was the same in all the stores + HDD and RAM was replaceable on the spot but no SSDs were in stock.

    - MBP 15" 2.0 Standard
    - MBP 15" 2.2 Standard
    - MBP 15" 2.3 Glossy HiRes

    For HiRES anti glare you need to order online.

    Thank you for the quick answers.
    I just called covent garden and indeed, they confirmed that for anti-glare customization I would have to order online. I didn't call the other store because of long waiting line on the phone but I think it's all the same.
    Oh well, I will have to wait til next week then :)
