    Trying to decide between these two setups. The pricing kind of has me torn.

    Late 2013 15 512GB / 16GB / 750M (121 Battery Cycle Count) $800
    ** Not that it matters but AppleCare+ until Dec 23rd.

    Mid 2014 256GB / 8GB / Intel Iris $825

    Main use will be for college. Business Information Systems so a bunch Office Apps and multimedia.

    I much prefer to work on a 15, but the 13 is much more portable and easy to throw around. If you're going to use it in school a lot I would go with the 13. Both prices seem fine, although the 15 seems like the best offer to me. I don't think you'll run into problems with 256/8, so the main parameter for me would be more or less portability

    Sorry I should have mentioned. My classes are all online. I think I'm leaning towards the 15" for the screen real estate. I guess I'm just hesitant buying a late 2013 model. I haven't read about any crazy issues with this model.

    Take the 15"! It has way more advantages and it's a better machine.
