    They did in the UK. I ordered the i7 / 8GB RAM / 512GB SSD online, then thought to ring my local store to check whether they were stocking them. They were, so I cancelled my online order and picked up my new MBA later that same day. I was told they had a lot of them in stock.

    I was in one yesterday and it was only base models and ultimate. Which seems strange, as the 8 GB upgrade is what everyone wants, but almost nobody wants that high priced 512 gb ssd.

    Only the ultimate configs have the 8gb upgrade in store. i7/8gb/512

    QCassidy352 - so true. i think its deliberately like that, to force people to get the ultimate on the physical store rather than waiting for shipping for just the 8g upgrade.

    I believe you could return the ultimate model from the store if you decided you didn't like it within the allowable period. Unless Apple has changed their policy, there are no returns any custom order macs (such as additional RAM).

    Just another subtle difference to keep in mind when making a choice. :)

    Correct, no refunds on BTO/CTO, and no replacement unless DOA.
