    Is this a good deal for a 2015 2.5 ghz 15 inch MacBook pro with 512 ssd and amd graphics? It has Apple care till mid 2018, it is a year old.

    If it's in a good condition then yes because :apple: sells them for a few hundreds more plus tax and the apple care http://apple.co/2fZm4eG

    So a year old with 2 years of warranty left would be a better deal you think than a brand new one with no extended Apple care?

    it is upto you.. i wouldnt pay. to me it doesnt matter that it is from 2015, hardware is much older - it has an old 4th gen processor (intel is now in 7th gen), new macbooks have 6th gen cpu for example.

    I am 100% certain I want to buy a 2015 model. The new ones are way overpriced. Last years model handles everything well and is a great experience. I don't see any point in upgrading.

    The only decision point for me is deciding whether to stick with a refurbished base model or go for a used higher end one with Apple care for a little more.

    I think that's a great deal. I just purchased the same model with 1tb off of eBay for 2300. It had AppleCare until November 2018, Final Cut Pro, Adobe Suite and Office Professional, not bad in my opinion. Last years model has plenty of power for what I would use it for.
