    Just wondering, the only sifference between these models, in terms of specs is a slight 0.2 ghz in processing speed? I've just bought a late 2013 model with 8gb RAM and 256gb SSD at John Lewis for £1079. The mid 2014 with the same specs (ignoring processor) is £1199. I'm sure I've made the right decision saving £120 at the expense of 0.2 ghz speed. But it's annoying know its late 2013, and its nearly late 2014..

    Please help get rid of any buyers remorse, I made the right decision, right?

    P.S. Sorry if this is a silly thread!

    I'm assuming because of the prices, that you've bought a 13".

    In which case, yep for the sake of 200MHz, you've saved £120.

    I just bought a refurbished late-2013 model, specifically because the 2014 models are almost identical in every way other than tiny processor bumps (as you mentioned). For instance, I considered a 2014 but it was something like 15% more in price but only maybe 5% higher performance.

    Although I got the mid-2014 (with education pricing) I think you made the right choice. There is barely any difference between my 2012 rMBP and my 2014 rMBP, so I am sure there is almost no difference between the 2013 and the 2014 :)

    I picked up a 13, 256, 8gb as well for about 960 US. Had some minor cosmetic issues but still under warranty so far it's been a great machine. Running it with a henge dock most the time plugged into a 1440 asus display.
