Well the fastest way to get one would be to go down to the a physical Apple Store or physical Apple Authorised Reseller (if there is one in your area) and buy it there - No waiting for shipping :)

From everything I've seen, October 18th is the estimated date on any BTO configuration if you purchase today.


I've been looking because I'm going to order a 13" 256gb with 8gb as well as soon as I return my current mba (thought I'd be happy with 4gb of ram but I'm not).

Most of the stores I've checked don't carry 8gb of Ram models in the store.
You have to order and either ship to house or ship to store and pick up.

checked with MacMall and they do carry them in stock I was told it would ship the same day, good luck with yours, I wanted to get the base +8gb ram for a cheaper price, but no luck so far might just go with the one from MacMall

My brother also checking around for an 8gb ram model 13" MBA. I started a thread asking for various places buy MacBooks and we gathered a nice list over there. However not all of them carry 8gb models. He's not under any time restraints as you are, so he (nor I) have looked too much into the shipping times.

Nice! Well I'm glad you foun a solution. I'm taking my 4gb back today and as soon as my Barclay card comes in the mail (7-10 business days) I'm gonna order my BTO MBA with 256gb and 8gb ram. I'll feel so good once I've placed that order. (Nervous ninny til then)

Let us know how it goes with Mac mall
