    Hi!

    I am visiting Tokyo in late November and by that time I expect the 2016 MBP to become available through retail.

    I want to buy it there as it is $100 cheaper than the US Apple Store and visitors/tourists can buy it tax-free.

    Is it possible to buy them with a US keyboard and have it BTO for 16GB of RAM?

    It is. I live in Japan and you can pretty much get any US model here. Just pre-purchase your BTO and ship to your address here in Japan.

    Quick question, I'm also going to be heading to Japan and hope to grab one while I'm there. What do you mean by BTO? I have no clue what it is.

    BTO - Built to Order. With Apple, BTO options are things like adding more RAM or a bigger hard drive, etc. Things that are optional for a price.

    FYI - the branch nearest to me carries base models right now. I think you'll have almost no trouble picking up a base model.

    Check http://www.istocknow.com to track inventory of base machines.
