    Hello,

    I'm trying to buy a new (old) 15" macbook pro, I'm most likely going to buy it from a second hand selling site Trademe.co.nz (I'm in New Zealand)

    The two models which i've got my eye on both have different ups and downs. I'm hoping someone here can help me choose what the better option is and how much i should spend on it.

    Option 1 (2014 Retina)

    Option 2 (2012 Retina)
    http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=1275643822

    Thanks for any help or advice you can offer.

    There is also another model similar to the last two:

    http://www.everymac.com/systems/app...-graphics-late-2013-retina-display-specs.html

    Which has been upgraded to include 500Gb SSD

    But's it's more expensive, at $2675 NZD

    The 2014 is by far the best deal, best graphics, 16Gb of ram and a newer chipset I'd go for that in a heartbeat.

    The 2012 is overpriced, even if it did just have the screen replaced.

    I agree with the above. The 2014 seems like a better deal.

    Definitely go with the 2014 over the 2012. Nothing wrong with the older model, but I think the 2014 model represents a better value imo
