    I have a budget of $1500-1600 and I'm looking at refurbished 15" MBP Retina's on Apple's website. I'm a working photographer and this will be used mostly as a secondary computer to my Mac Pro tower.

    Thanks!

    I'd get one with 256GB and 8GB of ram. Did you check their refurb site to see if there's anything you like?

    I am working as a photographer, too, and can tell you that you can not do anything wrong with none of these three models. I would personally go with the second one: Great price and dGPU (if you are using applications that can make use of it).
