    I really need to update my 2009 MBP. I've been bouncing between Windows and Mac in deciding where to go next. I almost want to really try Windows, but as I don't have any time to switch platforms, I'm going to stick with Mac for 1 more iteration, though I am less interested in Apple than every since I switched in 2007.

    That being said, IF the up-rev the MBP specs (which is all I'm expecting), I would likely just get a 2015 refurb. I like the 2015 because of the PCIe implementation over the 2014.

    What is the likely additional price drop on 2015 refurbs once the 2016's are announced. If it's only like another $100 off (or less!), maybe I'll just go ahead and get a 2015 now.

    The 2014 models also used PCIe for the SSD, it just wasn't as fast.

    I'm not expecting much. It's interesting looking at the current pricing. The 2014 refurbs aren't a whole lot cheaper than the 2015s. It'll probably be less than a $100 price drop.

    I'd agree with this estimate.

    Based on the current 2015, 2014 & 2013 prices of the refurbished 15" high end MBP price of $2119, $2079 and $1999, respectively. The refurbished 2015 might become $2079.

    That's my best guess.
