As the subject says I called several Apple stores and all the sales associates just feigned ignorance. My nearest Apple store is 45 miles away so I don't want to waste the gas and time

Sales associates really shouldn't feign ignorance. What did you ask them exactly? If you ask if a certain specced model is in stock, they should be able to tell you.

You can order a BTO 11" MBA i7/8GB/512GB from Macmall.com or Apple.com and have it delivered to your house for free.

Here's the situation, I want to buy one with student discount and sales tax free. I'm passing through Portland on the way to Seattle so I'd like to pick one up at the Pioneer Place store in Portland. I don't want the crazy priced 512gb option so what I'm hearing is the i8/8gb/256gb is 'ultimate 11' sold in the stores. I've called my local stores and the Portland area stores and they claim they only have the 2 stock configurations. I heard the same BS before when I got my MBA 13 Ultimate in 2011 and in 2010 (yes I'm sick lol)

most apple stores will stock the "upgraded" 11" model, i7/8GB/256GB. Not the ultimate 11", but a pretty darn 'upgraded' one.

I don't need 512GB for an 11 incher, but I go all out for a 17 incher on storage.

It depends on the store. In NYC, the stores generally have the i7/8GB/256 combo. I don't know if they have the 512GB or 128GB versions in stock. Some of the smaller suburban stores just have the stock configurations.
