    I am wanting to buy a MBP, but I'd really like at least 160 gigs. Is it possible to upgrade in this way in-store, or is that upgrade only available online?

    Call the store and check. Sometimes they'll have a few of the more popular upgrades in stock.

    Just for searchability's sake, I called my local store and they said that they could install an upgrade to a base system, but it would have labor costs of $150-$200, which, as the employee pointed out, is much more expensive than just simply ordering from the Apple Online store.

    Yeah, it is cheaper.

    That is why I wish the shipping dates for the Macbook Pro would go from 7-10 days to 24 hours. But I doubt that will happen anytime soon. I want the base MBP but 160 GB as well.
