Customize your Mac

Please shop our Apple catalog for an extensive selection of standard and custom-configured Mac hardware. If you require a custom-configured Mac that does not appear in the Tech Shop catalog, please use the following steps:

  1. Visit the Apple Education Store.
  2. Select desired product(s) from the catalog and configure with desired specifications. Once each product is configured, select Add to Bag.
  3. Select Review Bag. On the screen titled "Review your bag," expand the product details.

  4. Take a screenshot of the product details and pricing (Mac: Shift + Command + 3 | PC: Windows + Shift + S). All desired products and custom specifications must be visible (see example below). If you wish to include accessories or AppleCare with your purchase, do not add those items to your Apple Education Store bag or include in the screenshot. You will be able to add those items directly from the Tech Shop catalog during step 5.

  5. Email the screenshot to [email protected].
  6. Tech Shop staff will supply you with an exclusive item number for your custom order via email, usually within 72 business hours. This message will include an approximate ETA for your item(s) and detailed instructions to complete your order. Once you have completed your order submission, we’ll take it from there!


Custom configured Apple products are manufactured to order and ship from overseas. Lead time (from placing the order to receiving the product) is typically 4-6 weeks; new and/or high-demand products can take 8-10 weeks or longer.

Please confirm that the ETA provided in your order instructions will meet your needs before completing your order. Custom configured products are not eligible for order cancellation or return.
