Customize your Mac

All desired products and custom specifications must be visible. 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. Tech Shop staff will supply you with an exclusive item number for your custom order, usually within 72 business hours, which will include all items contained in the screenshot you submitted.

Select Shortcode as your payment option, and we will ship to the delivery address you select.
