Under Storage select 256GB Flash Storage for our Standard Recommendation. If more than 256GB of storage is needed, you must select 512GB or 1TB of Flash Storage. By defalt, Apple provides a wireless Mouse and Keyboard. You can change the selection to Wired Keyboard and mouse further down the page. In order to get the Wired mouse option, you must first select Wired Keyboard. Mouse and Keyboard options will not effect the price. 

 After making the change(s), select Update to proceed.

Note about dual displays with the Belkin Thunderbolt 2 Dock: At least one display has to be Thunderbolt or Thunderbolt 2 technology-ready. For displays that are not Thunderbolt technology-ready, the Thunderbolt port is backwards compatible with Mini DisplayPort. The dock supports either HDMI or Mini DisplayPort, but not both. We are working on another recommendation.
