Sounds to me like you don't really want to keep it. So don't.
If it isn't working correctly, return it or have it repaired. You shouldn't have to reboot to use your USB port.
As for waiting on the new rMBP, does the current rMBP suit your needs? Does it do the things that you require it to do? Do you actually NEED the new rMBP for some feature or function that it will offer that your current rMBP doesn't have?
The current rMBPs are all good computers. The 15" model is a little out of date when it comes to the CPU and GPU, but it has the horsepower to do most tasks.
If you'd rather wait for the next round of updates, you might be better of having your rMBP repaired or exchanged for one that isn't having USB problems.
I had that happen recently on my late 2013 rMBP - turned out to be a defective USB-3 cable.
Have you had to reboot multiple times or just once? I've had the same problem once or twice on my 2015 (which I've had for a year).
It sounds like you're happy with the computer you've got so you don't really have a reason to upgrade.
I would, however, take it in and see if Apple can figure out the USB port issue. That isn't normal.
Hmm having this issue with my 3 TB HDD. Under windows 10 boot camp, there appears to be no issues but under OS X after a few days the USB port doesn't seem to work with HDD. Rebooting fixes it. I know it does since plugging in a USB mouse does work.
Take it in to apple and have them look at it, especially because it is so new.
And by having them look at it they will need to make a log, which will prove to be helpful if you have a similar problem later.
