    I'm contemplating getting the $1489 rMBP 15.

    Is it worth it to get it now, in the sense that it'll be competent by 2019-ish when I plan to upgrade to Cannonlake? It'll be used for schoolwork, Python, and general web use.

    It's the late-2013, with little difference to the 2014. Should I get the 2013, 2014, or hold out for Broadwell?

    That's a pretty good price for a 15" MacBook Pro with Retina display in my opinion, especially since the differences between that model and the current model aren't very significant. What are the specifications on it in terms of RAM and storage?

    8gb ram and 256 ssd. It's the one on then Apple refurbished page.

    Not bad especially being an Apple refurbished unit you're essentially getting a like-new unit with full warranty. I'd do it.

    I've had that exact model for 2 weeks now and I am very happy with it.

    Just got mine last week, love it! Considered buying a 2014, I can afford it, but it seemed a waste of money to get it over the 2013 model.

    I got a late 2013 rMBP a few months ago. Loving it. If you're looking for a new computer, don't hesitate. You won't regret it. And the late 2013 is a great deal since the 2014 is just a speed bump upgrade.

    If you can wait, you'll always get a better computer. It's just a matter of how long you want to wait and how much you want to spend.

    Good to hear. At that price point, it's really tempting for me to ditch my Sandy Bridge. But then Broadwell's just around the corner...

    I'm probably gonna get one. Wish I could get 16GB RAM, but oh well. 8 is enough.
