My soon to be 6 year old 13" MBP is in need of replacement. I was holding out for a 13" rMBA, but alas that's likely not going to come about any time. I wanted something 'cheap' since I don't need heavy duty as I just recently got a powerful desktop, but now I'm thinking of getting a refurbished rMBP. The new MacBook I don't want because it's the same price as the MBP for less power, and as a PhD student I use USB drives a lot so I kind of want those ports. Anyways, so my 3 questions are: 1) How was this MBP originally $1149? They start at 1299 I thought?This 2) How long about until the newest model with Force Touch hits the refurb store? 3 months? 4? More? Obviously this is a guess and speculation by you guys, but I'm still curious 3) Would you recommend a refurb or the student promo deal in the summer? I think I can get a little more $$ off in the end even considering the $100 gift card with the promo if I get a refurb, right?
