Just ordered the basic 6 core model and upgraded the ssd to 512. Says I can pick it up in feb at the apple store but its charged my card already. I thought Apple doesn't charge the card until it ships?

They don't charge you until it ships. They only put a block on the amount.

Apple placed a $1 place holder on my card after I placed the order. I didn't see any pending charge until my Mac was shipped.
