Which one should I buy? **Second hand Macbook pro 13" mid-2014, 16Gb Memory, 2.8Ghz core i5, 512Gb SSD** OR **Brand new Macbook pro 13" early 2015**?

Hi all,

I have two choices:

1- Buy a new Macbook pro retina 13" early-2015, 8GB Memory, 128GB SSD, 2.7Ghz corei5
2- Buy a second hand Macbook pro retina 13" mid-2014, 16Gb Memory, 512GB SSD, 2.8Ghz corei5

My friend offered my to sell his macbook pro retina mid-2014 with the spec that I mentioned above, for the exact same price as the cheapest new macbook pro 13" early-2015.
I have checked his laptop it's working totally fine and no problems, I totally trust him. He just want to get a Macbook Air and he thinks he made a mistake by buy this one.
He bought his laptop in late Feb 2015.

So which one should I buy? please help me!!

I usually play Dota 2, use Photoshop casually, watch movies, and do programming.

Thanks very much.

    I think you should go for your friends laptop. You're getting twice the ram, a more powerful processor and four times the storage for the same price.
    This should even have more resale value than the 2015 version.
