This is a million dollar question really but what I am wondering is have I wasted my money? I have purchased a refurbished MacBook Pro 15inch May 2015 2.5 Ghz. This has cost me through Apple £1699. Now I could of gone for the less spec model (refurb) for £1350 2.2 Ghz and was wondering have I just gone overboard for the sake of it. To be fair I am an average to basic user of a Mac, play a couple of games, small amount of video editing and general usage. My wife is shortly going to be working from home due to her job so will start using it more for a work device. The reason for the screen is the wife prefer the larger size (que joke!). I'm not overly fond of cloud storage through experience of using a Western Digital Mybook which is unusually slow so why I like the 512 GB drive. I used to have an iMac mid 2010 but after 6 years it started to go quite slow, now I could of upgraded it but wanted to loose it for the space it took up, hence why I have chosen a MacBook. Now my logic is that this should last me hopefully 7 years of good usage before needing another update. What I am trying to work out though have I gone to high spec with what I have chosen (basically trying to keep up with he Jones) and should I of gone for the lesser model? I am just wondering for the extra £350 I have spent was it worth it for the SSD 512Gb and the the extra processing power and the improved graphics card. I am basically just trying to get prolong the life of this MacBook for the future. As I say I'm a pretty basic user.
