    Refurbished versus new MacBook Pro w retina

    I am looking at buying a Mac laptop. I think I am leaning toward the MacBook Pro-13 inch w/ retina display. I have also found the same laptop, with identical features, that is refurbished. It is also from Apple. After the added cost of Apple Care, I will save about $250.

    Can anyone tell me the difference with the New MacBook Pro and a 2013 model?

    The retina MacBook Pro lineup got a relatively minor boost in 2014, with slightly improved processors and more RAM (8GB vs 4GB). I believe all storage options remained the same.
