Hello - As the new MBPr line rolls/rolled out, previous stock is waning. I have a chance to get either the new MBPr MGX72LL/A (2014: 2.6Ghz, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD) or a MBPr ME865LL/A (2013: 2.4Ghz, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD). As I gather from the specs sheets, the only prima facie difference should be the processor speed. I am on the fence on this one, as a friend (devil's advocate ) said newer is better, but the only issue I;d worry about is if the 2013 battery may be affected by the product sitting there fro whatever amount of time it has been. Prices are $1249-ish on 2014, $1299 on 2013. Comments are welcome. Thanks, regards.
