Do the local Apple stores carry the top of the line MBA 13?

    My local stores do, it's not displayed so call them or ask in person. Make sure you want the ultimate version and tell them the specs. Some employees have no clue what you are talking about.

    Better yet, ask for the manager.

    That's where I purchased mine but as the last poster mentioned, they're not displayed.

    Mine had them out the back.

    They weren't displayed and the front-of-house staff didn't know they had them :rolleyes:. But I rung and spoke to one of the guys out the back :D.

    It's tough to get one because of these two reasons

    1. Apple employees would be like OH we don't carry one, then they go back and find one.

    2. Some stores carry and some don't.

    Bottom line, call first and insist rep to check the back.

    Another hint to tell whether a particular Apple store carries a particular configuration, is to look at the plastic display on the benches.

    To share my experience, it was until I glanced through those display that I realized they do carry the ultimate 11" MBA. I cancelled the online BTO order in the Apple store and bought from the store directly.

    Apple Store in Pacific Centre (Vancouver, Canada) has them.

    They, after getting approval from AppleCare and the manager, replaced my first MBA (ordered online) with an in-store model (same specs... 13" / 2.13 / 4GB / 256GB).

    5th Ave NYC has

    the top of the line 13" but supposively NOT the top of the line 11". I'll ask about the 11" next time.

    if I get one, I think it will be the 13".

    Nothing but stock units at Yorkdale Apple. Definitely no Ultimates.

    I was surprised to see that Fairview mall in Toronto has every configuration advertised in-store on the little price cards beside the demo models. From Base on up to the so-called "Ultimate" version.
