Do Apple Stores carry Macs with pre-installed software options? Or only basic configs

    Basically, I plan on buying the lowest model 15" MBP, with default everything except I'd like to have iWork '09 preinstalled. I know I can order that configuration from Apple.com but I was wondering if Apple stores might carry some Macs with iWork preinstalled.

    Umm...no, They will install it for you. Also remember that it usually is a trial, so they can just give you the key, as well as the box. :D

    I doubt it, it comes with a trial though, that can be upgraded, either way it's not that hard to just install it yourself... It's only iWork, takes about 5 - 10 minutes to install...

    Selecting the preinstalled option when configuring it online is only $49 whereas buying it separately is $79. Do you mean that if I choose to buy it in the store at the same time I buy my MBP, they'll give it to me for the $49 price?
