Hey everyone, so I've been looking to get the 15" retina macbook pro (high end model) for quite some time (over a year!), however here in Europe it's way more expensive than in the states, which always held me back. The new 2014 model is now in the refurbished store for my country and it costs 400 less than the retail price and 200 less than the education pricing. Since I would like to get the next revision (broadwell) or the revision after that (skylake) especially if there is some size/weight reduction (for carrying it around) and a maxwell GPU, I'm interested in the resale value of this machine. I could live without a laptop, however having it would help quite a bit. My question is do I loose a lot of resale value by buying refurbished? I myself like getting the new box and stuff, however saving another 200 would be nice, but if i loose those 200 on the resale value due to it being refurbished than it's not worth it. Just in case people try to suggest the 13" model due to it being more portable and more affordable, I've already kind of ruled that out since I will most probably end up having a VM of windows running half the time and this will be my main computer. Thank you for the answers.
