Would Apple's recycle program give me even less when the '16 rMBPs come out?

    I eventually plan on getting a new laptop, but it isn't urgent. Under Apple's recycling program I could get roughly $450 for my non-retina MBP. When the new ones come out do you think I would get even less? If so, I'd just trade it in now & go ahead and upgrade. I get that $450 isn't a ton, but it'd be a nice gift card value.

    Figured. I'm obviously not expecting to get a huge amount. I guess I just have to decide if I think the potential upgrades would be worth it ;). Might just go ahead and pull the trigger.

    Alright, I think I have my decision made & I'm gonna order it tonight. Going with a 13", 8 GB, 512 SSD rMBP. Almost went w/ the 12", but even though I'm not a "power user" this will be my main machine.

    Why not sell on on eBay or Craigslist and get actual cash, you may even get more then 450

    Yeah my 13" i7 non retina would go for like $700-1000 on eBay.

    I suppose I could replace the battery and throw in an SSD, and then try ebay? I say throw in an SSD, because I have the original HDD in there, and it's definitely slowing down.

    Don't spent $ on upgrades to sell it. You won't get your $ back.
