Hi everyone, I am now counting on you to help me with my choice. I have this 2011MBP, 8GB/256SSD,i5. It works great but gave up and I want the retina. I decided that I will buy a new MacBook Pro. I will be doing basic stuff, amateur photography/aperture and some iMovie and might jump on Final Cut if iMovie doesn't satisfy my. I will also be doing VMware. (some distro in Linux and might have a Windows 10 image also). I simply can't decide between these choices and I need advices in order to choose properly. Yes the less $ is better but again it's better to be future proof than be dissapointed. ... quick note, I like to have the french canadian keyboard... but again it doesn't stop me to type french characters on a US kb but I don't want to regret... 1- Refurbished MBP 2015 with 8GB/256SSD (English keyboard) - 1711$ French KB 2015 with 16 RAM 1.1 - 2015 rMBP 8/256 - 1911$ 2- 2015 rMBP 16/256 french - 2140$ These new 2016 but I havee to buy 100$ of accessories since it's missing SD, USB ports... 3- 2016 MBP 16/256 french - 2742$ 4- 2016 MBP 16/512 french - 3030$ There is a big price difference between the 2015 and 2016. 2016 lack of ports... 2015 all ports available. 2016, known graphic, battery issues, should I be stepping away? Anyway, many questions here and I think your advices will make it clearer! Thanks a lot!!! ...quick edit: Maybe I should be waiting for boxing day? Does Apple do anything for that day? or wait for August/september for the back to school?
