    I see MBP 2016 supports only 16G for cost about $2699 with no RAM upgrade option in future.
    I prefer 32G or 16G with Upgradable option, so, Do you suggest to wait for MBP update to support 32G?
    If so, when is expected to have update approximately (i know many would not know the answer).

    Thanks in advance

    do you use more than 16gb of RAM?

    do you need a new computer?

    if no, yes, then buy
    if yes, no, then don't
    if yes, yes, then maybe
    if no, no, then don't

    This topic has been beaten to death lately, but I guess we can talk about it some more.

    Unless you're a serious power user, you will probably not need more than 16 GB of RAM for approximately 3 years. If you are a power user and you definitively need more than 16 GB and you cannot afford a luxury purchase right now, then you might opt to wait. I'm currently waiting it out, but keep in mind that I am a super power user and I actually need the extra RAM. I bet less than 1% of the customers out there fit this bill.

    As for the wait, I predict a minimum of at least 12 months, but 18-24 months is a very real possibility.

    Given this information, you can now choose the best path for you.

    If you can ask this question, you don't need 32GB of RAM. Get the 16GB one.
