Currently on the market for a refurb 15 rMBP since I just passed down my Late 2012 13 rMBP to my brother. Im definitely purchasing from the Apple.com refurb store but I'm currently debating on which of those I should buy. My two options are the following: Early 2013 2.4 i7 8GB Ram 256GB SSD + Nvidia GT 650M for $1,659 + tax or Late 2013 2.0 i7 8GB Ram 256 SSD + Intel Iris Pro for $1,699 + tax. As I see it, the main difference between these two is the dedicated video card on the Early 13 model vs the faster SSD on the Late 2013 model. I will use the machine daily for internet browsing, word, excel, email, itunes, and will use Aperture, Illustrator CC and Photoshop CC perhaps a few times per month when I'm away from my 27'' iMac. In addition, I will sometimes play FSX on Windows 7 using bootcamp. Which of these machines would you buy taking account what I will use it for? BTW I'm planning on keeping the machine possibly between 1 - 1.5 yrs. Thanks for your input!
