    Hey everyone,
    I've been thinking about buying a new macbookpro in the next year or so, my late 2008 mbp is getting a bit old now, and 'we believe' it's more than time for an upgrade!

    I'm looking for a mac that, in addition to sustaining logic pro, does great for gaming (yes on a MAC!).
    That means I want a reasonable processor, a fair amount of ram and a decent graphics card.
    I believe the 2500$ 15inch should probably be the best for this job but its prohibitive price brings me to ask the following questions :

    - are the 13 inches good enough for this? (Probably not..)
    - is the 2000$ 15inch decent enought? (doesnt have the amazing 2gb vram graphics card..)
    - should I wait for the 2016 mbps? (with skylake? And probably a new gen graphics card?)
    - should I buy another separate computer for gaming? (I'm bad with the non-apples but if thats the only way I can cope with that)

    Thanks!
    Any comments or advises appreciated :D

    Just by browsing the B&H site occasionally.
    I think that deal has been posted on the forums here a few times as well.
