    is it giving problems, is it compatible with old adobe suites?
    someone told me to buy a refurbished one, how reliable are those.
    Which is better for graphic design??

    The new MB/MBPs are great! When it comes to graphic design, better specs generally equals better performance. Your biggest limitation is probably your budget.
    Refurbs are anywhere from 10% to 30% cheaper, and they're usually very reliable and indistinguishable from a new model. They're also usually previous generation equipment. It really comes down to which one you like better.

    I recommend the model before the new one. I have that and I love mine. It's a perfect fit for what I do. Check the sig for my specs. I spent $1700 on mine about a month before the 528mb 2.4's dropped to $1499 or whatever the price is. I don't regret it though. This has been one of the best laptops I've owned (the other was a 17" MBP )
    2013 15" MBP - 2.6ghz QC i7 - 16GB RAM - 256GB SSD
    2002 G4 Tower - Dual 450s - 1GB RAM - 270GB HD
