    Haswell would have a GT750m.

    I'd go with a late 2013 or mid 2014 model.

    any idea where to pick one up or buy online other than the apple store. Don't really want to pay extra $150 bucks for tax.

    does macconnection "price match" the education discount through apple.com?

    I'd say that for the price, it's a good machine. I could use that much storage. ;-)

    You're missing out on Haswell processors, 802.11ac, and PCIe SSDs. You are gaining 512GB of storage. dGPU performance (650M vs 750M) will be about the same. iGPU performance will heavily favor the newer model.

    Depends on what you need..

    Speaking of good deals. The top end 2013 15" is up for $2,039 on the refurb store. Is that a good deal? Pretty much same specs as the new top end model for $500 less?

    I'm pretty sure Apple only sells refurbs directly.

    Check out Best Buy, they may still be offering some good discounts for students.

    Looks like a good deal to me.
