Macbook Pro Haswell LTE 2013

Recommended Posts

My god have I waited for this. I wanted a decent good quality laptop with the Apple look and feel and here it finally comes!

 

Haswell will be sweet. The price point I'm still not too sure though.

 

Retina display is still a hard thing for my mind to decide whether it's a worthwhile purchase or not. I will enjoy the extra resolution as I will do video editing and light gaming but damn....

 

Is there any hope for a GPU other than Iris in the macbook pros?

 

Anyone else interested?

Only the higher spec 15" gets a Nvidia GPU, the rest is Iris or Iris Pro. Anandtech's coverage of the Iris and Iris Pro chips seems to show that Iris and the GT750m are pretty close in performance up to a point, but for heavy gaming at FullHD res with AA and AF turned on, the margin becomes pretty wide in Nvidia's favor. That being said, I don't know if Bioshock Infinite running at 30fp/s is really a "win".
