My brother is thinking about getting a 3ds for my nephew, but he won't be buying games for the system and he isn't one to deal with hard-modding and stuff so if it comes with 11.0.0 it will be useless. Is a n3ds bought in stores in new york likely to still be on 10.7.0 or lower?

Most likely 10.7 or below. But now Nintendo is manufacturing New 3DS XL's on 11.0, so there is absolutely no guarantee. However, you can always return the system and say that you decided you don't want if it's on 11.0.

The new mario land n3ds bundle is said to be 10.7 and it's just $150

Is anyone able to confirm the mario bundle at 10.7? I got a used n3ds on ebay and the c stick is a bit hinky. I also think the top screen might be washed out, but I can't be certain.

You can probably still find 9.6 and lower models. I know my local Walmart has some that have been sitting for ages, one of which has a serial that should be 9.2.

the special editions are the safest bet to buy since there's only a couple which come with 11.0.0-33

plus, just look at it....
