    Hi guys,so I am buying a MacBook Pro 15 (picture attached) and it's $1699 I could have bought the late 2013 one too but it doesn't have a dedicated gpu , and $1700 is my max so what I was wondering , if I wait for the next gen will I be able to get the model with the 750m for the same price.

    Thanks all advice is appreciated

    Do you need one now?

    What will you be using it for?

    Without knowing the specifics its hard to say what model is right for you

    Personally, the one above the screen shot with the Iris Pro sounds like it would a great machine, I'd maybe opt for that

    Need it now but can wait if it's something major ,use it for some gaming and 3d work. That's why I needed the gpu :) thanks

    The 750m is no big improvement over the 650m. The bigger VRam (2GiB vs. 1GiB) may make a difference in some games (and perhaps with your 3D work), but unless your profile falls exactly in this niche, you should either buy now or wait until Intel Broadwell/nVidia Maxwell next year.

    Nothing major is coming down the pike. Since you mention gaming, I'd look to the dGPU equipped models then.
