I want to switch to using a Mac, but I don't want to get the 2016 since the 2017 will be coming out later this year and may improve upon it. So I'm looking to just buy an older one anyway to avoid the USB-C port issue while support for that hopefully increases. Once that happens I might upgrade to a newer one. I am not asking for any deals to be offered to me from anyone here. I'm torn between these older ones though. The 2015 is a 2.7 GHz i5, 16 GB RAM, 256 SSD for $1,300. It's from the original owner (expired warranty, no applecare), but original box and receipt and no wear at all so it looks just like new. I found a Mid-2014 13" with 2.6 GHz i5, 16 GB RAM, 256 SSD for $900. It has a few minor scratches and scrapes here and there but it doesn't look too bad. No original packaging or anything, just the charger is included. The 2015 is local to me, the 2014 is through one of those popular auction sites (and the price includes shipping). The seller of the 2014 does offer a 14-day return policy. My suspicion is that I might like either one of these so much that I won't see the need to get the new one later on and mess with the new ports. That mindset puts me on the 2015, the last and newest of the old style that became really divisive with people with the 2016. But at $1,300 it seems pricey, I mean I can buy a '16 refurb for a little less (Though that is only 8 GB and not 16 GB) but it's absolutely brand new with warranty (though I hate to buy a '16 knowing that the '17 refresh will be coming soon and probably improve various things). I can probably make do with 8 GB but I'd like to go with 16 GB for the maximum longevity. The '14 feels like a much nicer price, but it is a bit older and will feel much more used with the scratches and things on it compared to the '15. The only worry I have on the '14, the seller also looks like they have parts for Macs. Now this may mean nothing, but I wonder if they may specifically get macs that had to be repaired or something and resell them. Their feedback is 98.9%, so not flawless but only 1 negative in the last 12 months. Advice? I'd like to have one that if I decide I just can't make the switch or if I want to buy a newer one that I won't have a hard time selling and getting most of my money back out of it.
