I'm still interested in buying a Macbook Pro classic and its last release was 2012. However, the price of these laptops are still staggeringly expensive. They are often as expensive as the Retina models which have the superior display, faster processors and graphics and more modern I/O ports. How much would people recommend I should pay for a new MBP classic or one "like new" from a retailer. I like the idea of being able to put in my current 1TB SSD and max out the RAM and use it as either a portable Mac Mini or a laptop when necessary.
