I have the following dilemma. Given that I do not wish to spend more than $1299, which of the two options would be ideal? I can either get a new M3 or an Apple-refurbished M5 for almost the same price. My use will be typical of a student (word-processing, browsing, multimedia, and occasional processing of RAW files coming out of a 16MP camera). I don't really care so much about storage (though obv. the more the merrier, but its not a deal breaker for me) since I will be using my 1TB EHD anyway, and would only keep immediately relevant files on the laptop. It seems to make intuitive sense to buy the newest available model especially since the upgrades in other dimensions (battery, SSD, GPU, RAM) favour the more recent model. But I'm wondering if the 2015 M5 excels the 2016 M3 in any decisive respects. I'll appreciate any help. Thanks!
