    You should probably consider changing the thread title - it doesn't really tell someone browsing the forums what kind of help you need.

    That being said, I would completely eliminate the 2011 and 2012 machines from my buying list - they're VERY long in the tooth, in computer age.

    The 2014 MBP spec isn't complete - what type of on-board storage does it have, SSD, HDD, how large, etc.?

    We also don't know about the 15" MBP (how old it is). It would be difficult for me to spend money on a computer more than about a year old unless it's VERY inexpensive, and to me, $850 doesn't fall into that category.

    That's helpful thank you. So on the 2014 Macbook I just need to find out about the hard drive?
