    You 'll gets much as someone is willing to pay. There will be a lot of second hand macs on the market when the new ones come out as many people have been waiting for this update (no idea why I think they are all going to be mildly disappointed myself). So expect a competitive market and lower prices than normal for secondhand machines.

    Maybe it's just me but I don't understand this constant selling of Macs upgrading at every cycle. I don't mean to be naive, but is it just so you can always have the latest Mac? I would find it more trouble than it's worth!

    I'm also thinking of selling my mid 2014 15" rMBP due to the reason that my warranty expires this April. So either I have to get an Apple Care worth around 299$ (to be on the safe side in future) or sell this Mac, bear the loss and get a new one. Probably for an additional 400$ I can get a new Mac. Still deciding what to do.

    But surely doing this every year, at a loss of $400 every year, is not at all economical? Am I missing something?

    I will be needing a MBP for work (new services I will be providing from my business). If the new one comes out within a couple months I should be ok but if it doesn't come out til late this year, I won't be able to provide these new services.

    So, I was thinking to go ahead and buy one now so I have a portable machine for work without waiting any longer than I have to. If the new one is worth getting based on real usefulness and without losing more than few hundred dollars, I'll sell the 2015 15" MBP

    I have the exact same, and every aspect of it has been completely solid so far. I wouldn't sell mines right away, you never know what issues may come up with the new MBP. Now if they offer a version with 32GB ram, I'll sell my current MBP in a heartbeat.

    Check the comparable price on the refurb store and figure yours will sell for about 10-15% less than the current refurb price.

    Why? Are you really using 16GB? What do you do?

    I would say that 20% off of refurb pricing would do the trick.

    More RAM for VMs. And of course more is just better. :D
