I'm looking to buy the new MBA 13 and want to upgrade to i7 and 8gb.
Thing is, I have to buy in store because I have a gift card for £450!

Does anyone know what the process is when upgrading parts on a new Mac?
Apologies if I'm being naive, but will they stock MBA with i7 processors and 8gb ram, or will it be special order?

They should have the 512, i7, 8 GB but thats probably the only one they have outside of the stock 128, i5, 4 GB models.

If you call Apple (not the retail store, but Apple at 1-800-MY-APPLE) they should be able to order your custom config for you with the gift card applied. I may be wrong about that, but I did that several years ago with another product. Hope that helps!
