I ordered a new Mac Mini CTO base model, but with 2.26GHz processor (base model, as I will upgrade the RAM and hard drive myself). I ordered from Apple's website. Just a few hours later the same day I received FedEx notification that the unit was en route to me from SHENZHEN CN. So, Apple doesn't seem to be "custom installing" the upgraded processor as each one is ordered, rather, they have them ready to ship. I was wondering, though, if any of the Apple Stores stock on site the new Mini with the 2.26 GHz processor. Does anyone know?
