    I believe that in the 13" rMBP the mid range 2.4/8/256 holds it value the best amongst the 13"'s.
    What about the 15" versions?
    Which will hold it's value the best, the 2GHz/8GB/256GB or the 2.3GHz/16GB/512GB?

    I'm debating whether or not to return this and get the better model.

    I would guess an upgraded one would hold its value best.

    However, I do not think I ever purchased a computer with resale value in mind. I have always purchased one for my needs. Just my two cents.

    I think the resale value decays a lot without Apple Care. Sell your Mac when it's 2,5 years old and the buyer will still have 6 months of warranty. THIS gives resale value.

    The 2.3 GHz mainly because when you sell it you have a whole new crowd of buyers eyeing that NVIDIA GeForce 750M graphics card.

    People who edit video, songs, etc.

    So no doubt the 2.3 my man ;)

    EDIT: I know a man who refuses to buy a computer without dedicated graphics. I'm not sure how much he uses it but none the less that's his rule. There are lots of people who must have dedicated.
