    So the new ones look awesome, i need i7 16gb ram etc. With student discount (music production), for the new 15inch one it'll be about £2100. The 2015 MacBook however has had its price bumped up to £1899!!! I need one very soon if I'm honest.. so I'm torn between what to get. Could someone give me some advice? Thanks so much. Also 15 inch is preferable as I'll be staring at the screen a lot so I don't want to damage my eye sight. Thanks

    Why not get a used last gen 15"?

    Or another way to look at this, you'll be using this machine for at least 3yrs.

    My previous MBP lasted me 7years. My current one is from Late 2013, and showing no sign of slowing down, and I'm barely using 60% of its power.

    Was thinking that just trying to work out the current old spec model they are selling was that the previous top end model?

    US prices

    Capacity = $400
    Processor = $200
    Graphics = $100

    I think the choice is obvious.

    Select MBP 15" 2.7 model and look at upgrade prices. That's what I meant.

    Looked at them but the one with the 512GB storage at £1,999. Thats not the one on the apple website is it? Or would I need to upgrade the processor and the memory to get the same machine on the Apple site? Think we are both thinking Apple due to student/Teacher discounts?
