    Hi guys

    On feb i'm gonna spend some days in USA (i'm from Brazil) and i'm pretending to buy a MBA. But, the model i was looking for is the 13-inch 1.3GHz i5, 256GB and 8GB. This isn't the stock configuration, so i'm afraid that i won't find this model at NYC retail store. Anyone know if is possible i find this configuration at the retail, or i will be able to buy this model only online?

    Local Apple store doesn't have 8GB unless you go for 13" ultimate (8gb/i7/512 SSD)..Typically they have base models and maxed out. IIRC they had 3 versions of 13" in stock..i could check again if you like...Don't know if the NYC stores carry more versions though..someone from NYC would have to check.

    Depending on how long you're going to be in the U.S. you could order online and have it delivered to store to pick up.

    B&H stocks most if not all the configurations. Got my 11" i7/8gb/512gb MBA in the store there this summer. They were the only place in area with that model, none of the Apple Stores carried it.

    It is worth a trip to B&H if you've never been just for the experience anyway. There really isn't anything else like it. :)

    Not that it helps, but in the UK I think they stock everything except the i5/512/8 - the model I was going to, so ended up with the i7 instead :D
