It's a refurb, but the price is right. I went for it a week ago after checking out the ForceTouch pads, liking them, but lamenting the absence of 3 finger drag.

You scared me for a moment as I quite like the new force touch and am thinking of getting a new 13" rMBP to replace my well used and loved 2010 MBA. The 3 finger drag setting still exists, it just got moved to the accessibility settings. See here: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/6869616
