    Hi Guys,

    I was intitally planning on waiting for broadwell, but seeing as it will likely be released early to mid 2015, is it really worth the wait if you are purchasing the 15" MBP with the GT 750M considering Broadwell will mostly feature a significant improvement on the intergrated GPU?

    Yup, as Broadwell is mostly a die shrink. You'll see better power management and small increase in computing performance but the biggest bang is the iGPU.

    so iGPU aside the overall performance boost won't be major?

    There's always going to be some power and battery gain, but then something else more powerful will be added which will eat at the battery consumption, so the battery will stay about the same.
