    For various reasons, I think I'm going to return my new 2016 MBP-tb (I do think there are many great things about it, it just doesn't work for me at present). Instead, I am trying to purchase the maxed out mid-2015 Macbook pro model (the previous model, with a 1TB SSD, 2.8Ghz processor, and Radeon R9 dGPU). However, I am having a hard time finding it anywhere. I am happy to buy it at (what was) full retail price, or I'd be happy with an apple-certified refurbished model.

    Currently I have only found this brand new version from an Amazon third party seller, unfortunately they are a brand new seller with no ratings

    There is also this posting from a large seller on Ebay, which claims it is an Apple-certified refurbished model (I just emailed them to ask if any proof of this comes with the product, I'll see what they say):
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Apple-15-4-...727746?hash=item360c9b2382:g:IS0AAOSwB09YJIu6 and also

    I don't have any experience buying computers anywhere but directly from Apple, so I would really appreciate any advice or opinions which any one hear can offer, on the safety / reliability of anything like the above. I'd also be interested in any ideas about where else to look for the computer.

    Thanks a lot!

    Do you want a 15" or a 13"? In any event, have you checked out B&H Photo?

    Yep, buy directly from apple. I just spoke to the AU store today and they sent me a link for the 2015 MBP.

    I checked the Apple Canadian web store as I live in Canada, and you can still configure and purchase a maxed spec 2015 model with the 1TB SSD and any processor

    I often see Apple certified refurbished units on macsales.com, also known as other world computing and are a reputable Apple accessory provider. Their Apple certified refurbished units include the full 1-year Apple warranty & are eligible for AppleCare protection.

    Apple is still selling the 2015 15" MBP on their website.
