    This is incorrect. I bought an 11" 1.6/4/128 at my local Apple Store. It does occasionally vary by location, but most stores by now have 'Ultimate' versions of the laptops. I would call and ask if they have the one you want in stock.

    I bought an "ultimate" 11" in the Soho store in Manhattan. It was the only one on hand, but it was in stock!

    I too bought this 11 ultimate in store. A simple call to a store will answer your question.

    Cool, I'll give them a ring Tuesday. If it's in stock then I'll be bringing home a loaded 11in Air. :)

    Thanks guys.

    I wish Apple let the resellers sell the Ultimate versions...

    Not true.

    Based on reports on here some (many?) stores stock-
    1) the default config(s)
    2) the default config(s) with 4GB RAM
    3) ultimate versions

    Call your local store and ask I guess.

    I never heard about defaults with CTO RAM being offered in retail Apple Stores.
    I bought mine in Dec'10 and it wasn't the case back then at least, only defaults and "Ultimates".

    Me too. I bought a 13" MBA (Ultimate) a couple of weeks ago. Though, that rumored June refresh should be worth waiting for. (I guess I was just too impatient!! :))

    I went into the store intending to buy the ultimate MBA 11". But while talking to the salesgirl, I was thinking, now in the last two years, I have bought an iMac with the 9400m integrated graphics, a 2010 13" MBP with the 320m integrated graphics...in both cases, I had spent in the range of $1000-$1500 for my computers and each time I ended up with half@$$ graphics. I started asking myself: "why are you spending another $1500 on a slow computer with crappy graphics?" I then walked over to the big boy computers (15 and 17) and started to play with those.

    Two weeks later, I go online and buy a 2.3 17" MBP refurb! That's right, go into the store intending to buy an 11" Air, come out with a 17" Pro!

    I've seen some people on here say that they got a base model with just 4GB RAM upgrade. Not surprised since Apple does stock more popular configs in-store (on the Air the most popular upgrade is the RAM, or so I hear).
