    Buying a MacBook from Apple Retail Store
    Sorry if this is in the wrong forum, but I wasn't sure where else to ask.

    My grandfather is buying me a MacBook for graduation and he wants to take me to the local Apple Store in the Mall tomorrow. Can I get a MacBook right then and there? Also I want to upgrade the RAM and the HD. I know you can do that online, but is that possible at the store? Also can you use educational discounts at the retail store?

    Thanks.

    Yes, you can buy them in the retail store, more than likely they'll be in stock.

    No, you can't get any of the build-to-order options if you buy it in the store. You can only get those if you order.

    Yes, you can use the education discount.

    At my local apple store you can get the ram upgraded, but not the hard drive. I would ask the people in the store if they can upgrade the ram and harddrive.

    For the educational discount, make sure you have either your student id or something that shows youre a student.

    Do you have to be at a university or college to get an educational discount?
