I am in the market for a 15" laptop and I am thinking the prices will drop for the first gen 15" retina MBPs after the new Haswell ones are launched later this year. I want to get a 15" rMBP (refurbished from Apple or discounted models at Best Buy or other places). I can't spend >$2000 on a laptop, so I am willing to wait. I remember reading some posts here last year about some screen issues, stuttering during scrolling etc. when the first rMBPs were launched. Have those issues been fixed over the past year with software updates and such? Do the 2012 rMBPs have any underlying fundamental design, battery, screen or heating issues? Also will the first gen MBPs be fairly future proof going forward?
