    I have a late 2013 MBP that works fine. I never find it slow, but I know SSD will make it go faster. My thinking is the longer I can wait on a SSD, the cheaper it will be, and I should just ride this HD until it starts getting wonky (doing regular backups of course). Does this make sense? Anyone care to let me know what they think about it?

    What??? There's no way that a Late 2013 MBP doesn't come with SSD built in. In fact they should be PCI-E ones already.

    Do you mean you purchased a MBP in late 2013? It certainly isn't a late 2013 MBP with a HD.

    Oh wow - good call. I just checked the hardware and indeed it is SSD! I didn't realize that.

    in terms of 13"

    late 2013 and 2014 are nearly identical, minus clock speed.

    2014 and 2015 are nearly identical except force touch trackpad and slightly faster SSD read writes,

    and 2015 and 2016 non touchbar bench very similarly too

    haha

    i'd definitely keep the machine until it dies, but it won't be from the SSD more than likely,
