    I have looked at the 11" before and am worried it is too small, especially for reading course textbooks on Nook Study app.

    With edu pricing, the 11" with a i7 and 8GB RAM comes out $35 more than the 13" i5 with 8GB RAM. Unfortunately there is no i7 option on the lower end 13" and I don't really need drive space.

    I am replacing a unibody 2008 13" MacBook and I like the screen size, but want the upgrade mostly for weight. Not sure how much difference the .6 lbs will make from the 11" to the 13".

    I have looked at them before, unfortunately as they are tabled and tethered, you don't get the real world sense of using one on your lap or seated at a desk. I am leaning towards a 13". Bummer the 8GB RAM is BTO, I'll have to order vs. pick one up.

    You can BTO and have it delivered to Apple Store.

    For most people the 13" is better but some want the 11" for portability.

    Are BTOs that are store delivered, or BTOs in general returnable with the 2 week no penalty policy?

    And I am fine having it come to me directly, what if any advantage other than convenience is there to store delivery?
