    I'm wondering which models are known to have problems so I can avoid them? Are there any particular reliable ones? I'm from the UK and unfortunately there aren't any 15" refurbs in the store, and I can't afford the new ones.

    I would avoid 2011 and 2012 models.

    Have you looked on Amazon?

    You didn't notice that the OP is located in the UK, did you? :)

    And besides, $1400 for a 3 year old MBP is extortion.

    i recently picked up a 2013 iris pro 15.4 retina for 1100 on eBay and got $100 ebay dollars to use which I planned to use anyways. I would check ebay. They have pretty strong protections for buyers. At any rate I paid less than a refurb and got a great machine.
