    question, if i go into the new york store on 5th ave and ask for a MBP would i be able to get one immediately?
    these are the specs i want:
    2.5ghz
    250gb HD
    hi res LED matte screen

    thats pretty much a standard model isnt it?

    if anyone especially new yorkers know if they have them available that would be great.
    im only there for 3 days so if they dont have it i would be fudged.
    otherwise i will have to call them and order one and ask them to reserve it for me or something

    If it appears on the main store page, it should be in the store. No BTO options are available, except for memory, or a hard drive if you bring one in for them to install.

    does the hi res led matte screen count as BTO?

    Yes. As it is not in the online store, it comes from a drop down inside.

    My understanding is that its hit or miss on any store having a hi-res
    in stock.

    Well, there are several locations, plus there are several other resllers that sell Apple Products, so you have many options.
