    All the Macs I ever ordered that were new (not refurbs) always came right from China.
    Congrats on your new MacBook Pro, BTW!

    Congrats. One friendly recommendation though is that I noticed you opted for the i7 processor, however the $200 extra money spent on that would be put to better use on doubling the ram to 16 or doubling the ssd to 256.

    I think you're misunderstanding what has been said. For $100 less you could have got either 16GB of RAM or a 256GB SSD. Either of those would have been a far better upgrade then the slightly faster processor. Going from 2.7GHz to 3.1GHz is pretty insignificant in the grand scheme of things to be honest. At most it's probably 5-10% increase in speed.

    That was bad advice, the apple employee is a fool!

    Yes getting the 256Gb SSD would have been better as 128Gb can run out quickly and also the 256Gb SSD has significantly faster write speeds.

    Upgrading the CPU delivers the least improvement for your money. Doubling RAM to 16Gb would be useful if you were running VMs or some other memory demanding tasks.

    On CPU demanding tasks you won't see a noticeable difference, the other two potentially would.

    You can't, unless you return it and reorder or change your order before it is delivered.

    That CPU upgrade is really horrible value for your money.

    The 256SSD or the 16GB ram will give you a lot more in the long run.

    Change the order if you can.

    This. Typical uninformed advice from Apple geniuses. Don't mess around--at last resort return the unopened box and reorder or better yet, take one off the shelf and save your family some money.

    The SSD is removable, but there aren't any 3rd party upgrades available. You really can't upgrade it at the moment.
