What does "About this mac" show for a late model non-retina MBP?
Sorry to have to ask what I feel like is a really simple question, but the concept seems impossible to get an answer out of Apple or just via listings.
For a long time Apple continued to make the old fat non-retina 13" MBP, which it seemed lots of people said was outdated and not that good for how much it cost compared to a retina. They only stopped offering that in 2016, so for all that time people could still buy them. My simple question is, if someone were to buy one of those old fashioned MBPs in 2015 what does the "About this mac" screen show for the year? Since it's just a Mid-2012 that they continued to make, I am wondering if it says that. The Apple rep I asked this question - whom I'm not convinced understood what I was asking - said it would say the year it was sold.
So does a 2015 non-retina MBP (as an example) say Mid-2012 or 2015 in the "About this mac" screen? And if I want to buy one of those non-retina MBPs, how would I search for a very late production version of one?
