    Hi guys I have my rMBP for three weeks now I am still wondering if I made the right choice.
    Right now I have a brand new 2014 rMBP 8gb, 256 SSD, but for a £100 more I get a refurbished late 2013 rMBP with the same specs (but quad-core and larger display). I am facing a big dilemma so any advices would be greatly appreciated.


    P.S: My usage is very modest, but it is just the larger display that is tempting, on the other hand the 15'' would be an year-old laptop... Also a 2014 15" is not an option as that would be £300 more than my 13"

    2013 model exactly the same

    The 2013 model is the same apart from a tiny speed bump.

    That is just the year it was released, how old the computer is can not be told it may only be a few days old and then returned.

    Apple refurbished come with the same 1 year warranty and option for apple care so don't sweat it take the 15 inch if thats what you want...

    Will the graphic performance of the 15'' be better in terms of UI experience? I know that the Iris pro is a bit more powerful than the Iris, but the Iris pro also has to power higher resolution?
