Hello everyone As a long time pc user, my 5 year old pc is on its last legs, and I'm looking to get my first rmbp after a lot of deliberation, mainly the referb 15' 2.4/8/512 , 2.4/8/256 models. I have a limited budget of around $2000 cad (hs student, coming out of my pockets - parents are extremely cash strapped and I don't want to ask for anything more as they already do so much/ I have a stable part time job for 2 years already and have been saving up) , and anything above baseline 15' late 2013 is unfortunately too much for me, so its the reason why I'm turning to referbished older models. Do I get the 256gb model and get external storage or just the 512gb? I have no qualms about older software as long as its suitable to my needs; surfing, gaming (heaviest game would be tf2), general movie marathons connected to an external monitor, and some music dj-ing (just for school dances) + light video editing. So, is a early 2013 model worth it? Will it last me 4 years?( intel 4000 worries me) From the research I've done, the feb model would suffice for my needs, as its great compared to standard pc laptops already, but is the baseline late 2013 pro more worth it? Or, is a late 13' upgraded/if I can find a referb until I hit my price limit suitable for my needs? I like my screen space though and wouldn't mind lugging it around Thanks in advance for your opinions + advice ! P.S. I have a cousin in the states who can get me the referb model and bring it over (so I can save more money) but shes coming in a week so we need to make that decision now.
