Apple typically stocks the base model, a mid-tier model, and an ultimate configuration with beefed up specs in their brick and mortar stores. The first two configurations are shown up-front on the website. Which configuration of the more specced-out model is available in the store?

Edit: Found the answer by trying all combinations

1. Choose the higher model to customize. It won't work when you customize the base model, even when you choose the same specs.
2. 16GB RAM, 1TB storage, 35W power adapter

Hope this helps any future visitors stumbling onto this thread from Google.

Play around Apple Store online and see which one they have in stock.
if possible, visit a nearby Apple Store in person and ask.
only apple knows which ultimate model they have in stock.
