Does anyone know if Best Buy will be stocking pre-configured 2018 MacBook Pros with the new Vega GPU? These models typically have a model number such as M*****LL/A.

The reason I ask is I typically like to take advantage of Best Buy's 18-month interest-free financing when I make a large purchase like this. Thanks for your help.

Nope, Best Buy never stocks any custom configuration Apple products.
I'm not asking about custom-configured MacBook Pros. I'm asking about pre-configured MacBook Pros. (i.e. retailer stock) Currently, Best Buy stocks (26) pre-configured Mid-2018 MacBook Pro models. I'm assuming they'll get a supply of Late-2018 models as well. I'm just curious as to when that might happen.

Sure, call it whatever you want....Best Buy only stocks the models you see on the Apple website without any changes.

Not sure that's accurate. Best Buy currently has four Mid-2018 i9's in-stock, which is not a base configuration.

And ask yourself why not a single one in any speed they sell has 32GB RAM. Literally zero i9s on Geekbench have less than 32GB. Nobody is buying an i9 without it.

I agree that is really dumb, but my point is that they do stock several pre-configured MacBook Pros other than Apple's base models. Still not sure how they ended up with Mid-2018 i9's with AMD Radeon Pro 555X GPUs. That seems really strange to me since they stock the 2018 i7's with 560X GPUs.
