    looking at 2 refurbished 15" MBP for travel using PS and LR on the road
    Trying to compare the following 2, not much of a price difference
    Speed looks about the same but not sure if the resolution is referring to the external screen or not?
    Or whether there is a big difference in resolution
    Tempted to go with the 512GB memory and 2.5GHz?


    2015 model
    -2.2GHz i7 up to 3.4GHz
    -256GB memory 16GB ram
    Graphics
    Dual display and video mirroring: simultaneously supports full native resolution on the built-in display and up to 3840x2160 pixels on up to two external displays, both at millions of colours.

    Sorry,
    As you can see, I'm "geekless"
    Done the edit, my bad,
    Appears it was the graphics I was looking at

    Personally, buy a 2014 refurb seems like you're spending a lot of money on a 2 year old computer. I can justify purchasing a refurb on a 2015 model.

    I guess your right, looks like the $250 difference is for twice the memory
    As I hope to save all images on external drives and back-up to an external drive,
    The 256GB memory should be good for Adobe software, Photoshop/Lightroom?
    So might pull the trigger on a 2015 refurb
