    Hi all,

    I am in between of waiting or getting a new MBP as my current one ( Early 2011) will be leaving me soon. I am also in between of mixture of ideas of 13 or 15 but going towards 15 and change my computer life a bit after 10 years of dealing with smaller screen macs.

    The question is I want to buy the base 15 and sometimes play the Battlefield 1. I have seen the videos but I an curious what you guys been thinking ?

    Thanks

    If i were you i would get the base model and get one of the consoles either the Ps4 Pro or the Xbox Scorpio.
    I take it that you are thinking of playing online since its BF1 that you ask about, and it would probaly be a better experience playing on the consoles than through Bootcamp on a MacBook Pro.

    If the upgrade to a 460 Radeon GPU is cheaper in the US than here in Norway were i live maybe its ok to choose the MacBook Pro for gaming.
    But other than that consoles are a better gaming platform.

    When bumped from 450 to 460 price increases like crazy where you can actually buy an Xbox One S with that price jump.

    I am going to pass on that MBP totally and stay with my old mule and get an Xbox One S and wait for Scorpio.

    If you want to take your gaming with you, then just use the MBP.

    You will have to go down on the resolution though, but on a small screen it shouldn't matter.

    Just get the Xbox One or PS4 for gaming, unless there is a specific Mac exclusive game you want to play.

    With the PS4 you could also use Remote Play, and use your MBP as a screen. A really great feature for those times when the TV in the living room is occupied. If it wasn't for the Forza Motorsport series I would have switched from the Xbox One to the PS4 a long time ago, just for this feature alone.
