    Hello.

    Need some advice on purchasing secondhand 2012 Macbook Pros.

    With the price drop of the rMBPs it seems everyone is out selling their 'old' machines. When I say old I mean some of them are claiming they are anywhere between 8-3 months old.

    You can buy a mid-2012 MBP for about $8-900 USD. With apple care.

    What does everyone think? Buy one of these or get a new rMBP?

    Sorry I do not mean people are selling their 2012 rmbps. I mean they are selling their 2012 cmbps.

    I know. I stuffed the thread up and I'm now having an existential crisis.

    [Insert suitable emoticon]

    In short:

    $900AUD 2012 256G secondhand cMBP vs new $1700AUD 2013 256G rMBP?

    I might sell my Classic and buy a Mac Mini. Depends if I get a good offer for it. It's only about 4 months old with full upgrades. We'll see.

    I definitely will not be dumb about selling it. This is still the same Classic 13" you buy at the store for $1199 plus tax.

    What the heck... That's even cheaper than the student discount.

    +1 to you for pointing that out. Now I know where to buy my 15" retina.
