    if I get a stock MacBook Pro
    Like I mean walk into a Best Buy or Apple Store and buy a MacBook Pro.
    Can I upgrade the SSD FLASH?
    or it's best to order the MacBook online from appls6?

    If you upgrade anything and they don't have that specification in store, you'll have to order it. What I did when deciding was I used the apple app on my iPhone, and when you customize it gives you a little "updated shipping date" message on the top and if you click on that it'll tell you if the specification you're looking for is in stock at your nearest Apple Store or if you'll have to order.

    I'm sure the website will do the same, but I can't recall as I did it mostly on the phone.

    In a word NO.

    Its a little more complicated than that, in theory you can change an ssd on the non touchbar version but there are no replacements that will fit even close to the speeds apple are getting. The touchbar versions have the storage chips and RAM soldered directly to the board so you can't upgrade them at all.

    The best thing to do is buy the computer you need at the point of sale, get all your upgrades then. Budget for it, and if it's too expensive then consider a cheaper Windows computer.

    Never push your budget just to buy an Apple, because they're an expensive platform. You'll need cables, probably a case, other accessories, software, etc. And in my opinion none of that's worth it unless you've got plenty of cash or using it to earn money.
