I'm yet another customer contemplating where to by one. Don't know whether I should order from the Apple store online or just drive an hour to the nearest store in NY to test drive a glassbook before purchasing. If I end up going to the store location, will I be able to customize it there? I'd hate to hear they don't have a 2.4 4gb in stock, though after browsing the actual store online, I feel a little bit safer. Bonus points if they allow me to get the student discount after presenting my student ID. How did you buy your new macbook? Which method would you recommend / not touch with a 10 foot pole?
