I've finally put aside my qualms about 'waiting for the update' and 'refurb or new' and I've decided to just buy myself a refurbished 15" MBP. I'm not a power user, though I do some light graphics and gaming. Besides that my usage consists of entertainment consumption, homework (word processing, research, etc) and communication. I've realized how idiotic it is of me to worry so much over the best GPU, CPU or Screen when my current 13" MBP has suited me just fine. 'Alas I would like a Mac I'll be keeping for the next 3-4 years, so I want a 15". I've also decided on the MBP over a MBA because it will allow me to perform some upgrades later on (like SSD, RAM, etc) unlike the air to get more life out of it. So this is my final question: Is High Resolution (1680 vs 1440) that big of a deal for someone like me? Will I really care all that much? And while we're at it, will the rumored Retina displays really be worth $400-$600 and 4-5 months to me? Perhaps it's a question only I can answer, but I want your opinions. So yeah, rather than the plethora of "Should I wait threads" the screen is really just my last sticking point.
