Other than the touch pad is there any reason to spend more for the 2015? I need 500 gig SSD and 16 gig of ram I do memory intensive work photography and some video editing. I like my 17" 2010 2.6 I7 and 500 gig sad but its 8 gig of Ram is barely enough. Also the buss is only usb 2.0 with firewire. I don't see any other upgrades I can make to it. Not sure if its going to be earth shattering buying a new computer or not. But for the $350 difference in price is the 2014 15" a better deal?
