So I currently have a mid-2009 MBP 15" that I bought from the Apple Refurb store online many years ago, and have been incredibly happy with it. It is starting to show it's age though, and have been looking at replacing it with something newer. Problem is, I really like the matte/anti-glare screen and I know those stopped in mid-2012. I also like the fact they're manually upgradeable, where to my understanding, the newer ones have everything soldered in. I found a really nice, Late-2011 15" MBP locally that seems to be fully optioned out - matte screen, 16GB RAM, 500GB SSD, upgraded i5 2.5 (sandy bridge) processor.... it's also a great price. The mid-2012's upgraded to an ivy bridge processor, improved graphics, 1600 mhm RAM and included USB 3.0 I guess my question is, since this will likely be my last older MBP with a matte screen, should I wait to find a maxed out mid-2012 or will the differences between one of those and the Late-2011 mentioned above be very minimal? I guess I'm also wondering if there's anything critical I'm missing that someone might realize or add. Thanks for any input on this!
