Long story short: My 2012 15" rMBP took a bath in a diet coke and is currently throwing a tantrum. The natural thought would be to replace it with a 2015 15" rMBP, but for whatever reason I'm having the hardest time buying what appears to be essentially the exact same computer I bought back in 2012. I know the touchpad is different, slight processor upgrade, faster storage, 8 gb more ram, slightly better dGPU(unless I go for the base model). It just seems like a ton of money for a slightly different performing machine. There is a 13" rMBP with a 256 gb ssd open box at my local best buy that is $1300 and might be even cheaper because when I was in there on Saturday every used laptop they had was an additional 25 percent off because they were trying to clean out their return bin. I plan to stop by there later tonight to see if the 13" qualifies for this(It wasn't listed on Saturday). If so(and only if so), that's a very tempting offer... even though it will be smaller and not quite the same performer. Since I spend most my time at home(work from home), I've even toyed with the idea of getting a 27" 5k imac and then just getting an ipad air 2 for my portable needs(currently have a 3rd gen ipad that's feeling a bit slow). I actually bought an Amazon Warehouse 15" base model rMBP that showed up with a completely non-functional keyboard. Lucky me. ----- What do I use my macbook for? Well, nothing. Right now I just look at it sitting on the table and weep for days gone by. What did I use it for? Music editing(Logic), Photo editing(Photoshop, Lightroom, Aperture), web browsing and amusement(anytime I didn't feel like being desk constrained), media consumption (directly plugged into entertainment center). I do have a very well equipped pc desktop rig that is my main machine. For whatever reason, anything 'creative' I enjoyed doing more on my laptop and mostly use the desktop for work/gaming. So.... what would you do ?
