My apple computers never last me more than 2 years, because I sell my "old" mac and buy the new model, all the time (Yes, I'm one of those). The rMBP 13" would be my secondary computer, for a light text processing/browsing and some VM as well. I'm a big believer that the base model always holds the most value when trying to sell it, and I always get base. However, I'm having a hard time figuring out if the 4GB won't be enough in 1-2 years when I sell it, and I'd be better off with the 8/256 $1499 model. I think with 4GB of ram and 128GB ssd, I'll be completely fine for my daily use. I just want to know if these limited specs will be a huge problem when trying to sell it. It's the first time I'm seriously thinking in not getting the base model and going for the 1499$, if only for resale value. What is your opinion?
