    I hear that Apple Stores don't have custom configurations available. My question is what counts as a custom configuration?

    I'm planning on buying a iMac 24" 3.06GHZ 512MBGeforce 8800GS. I don't want to modify anything but I do want the following:

    -- Wireless Apple Mighty Mouse
    -- Wireless Apple Keyboard
    -- Applecare

    I know Applecare comes in a separate small box, but the other two would normally be packed in the box as wired devices. On Apple's online store you can upgrade to these devices for $30 or so each instead of paying full retail for them separately. Does this count as a custom configuration? Will the Apple store slice open the box and drop in a wireless keyboard/mouse and charge me the applicable upgrade rate? If I want these at the extra cost, would I have to buy from the online store? I might as well ask here and save a trip to their store if possible. :D

    Apple retail stores do stock iMac models with wireless keyboard and mice.

    New York. The state, not the toilet.
    Some Apple retail stores stock iMac variations. If you can get it with the wireless mouse and keyboard, then its returnable within your 14 day grace period.

    Applecare is a separate purchase, but you can hold off activating it for up to 90 days and still have full phone support.
