    quick questions.

    #1. if i buy/order in store can it be build to order (screen, RAM, etc...) or does that HAVE to be online?

    #2 if i buy a computer and apple care and my build to order breaks i just take it to ANY apple store, correct?

    thanks a lot in advance for the help!

    1. No on the RAM and HD. Glossy or matted screen I'm sure they'll have both in stock. All standard configurations.

    2. Yes or you can even take it to an "authorized" depot.

    Minor correction to that - I used to work at an Apple Retail Store as a Specialist and Genius and they do not carry the 17" MBP Hi-Def in stores. All else is correct though :)

    What/Who is an "authorized" depot? Is Best Buy/Future Shop one? Or what about a college tech store?
