Well that sounds promising! I can always render on my tower if I need to.. Guess I just wanted to make sure that it held up with most other things (well enough). I'm considering getting a used 2013 model and save a few hundred bucks - 15" Retina 2.7 GHz 16gb ram.
I guess I should say I don't know jack about the PC world anymore, so I can't compare at all. And I don't think there's been a 15" mbpro update since late 2013 anyway, which might mean they'll refresh them around september, if that means anything. Pretty easy to get them new online with no tax or shipping.
