Need a good 15" MacBook at decent price

I will buy used on Ebay, for one. But I am not sure what memory/CPU speed options to consider.

I mostly use if for email, web browsing, but also program sometimes in Angular and even load Windows on Parallels. Sometimes, I do C#.NET development on Visual Studio on Windows.

So, I want a machine that can perform, but have been living with much older MacBook processors without terrible difficulty.

What do you suggest for value and performance?

Thanks

I have a 13.3" and the smallness of the monitor is the reason I need an upgrade to a 15".
