    Hi everyone, I'm new to Mac and this is my first time I have considered bought one. Here is the deal I am looking at: Early 2015 13.3 standard configuration for 1100$. The seller promised fully sealed package and not yet activated machine.

    May I ask, is this a good deal. To be honest, I prefer any 15 inch RMBP but they are over my budget. Or better, is there any laptop under 1300$ that has similar performance to MBP and can run DOTA 2 at high setting?

    Thank you for reading

    To be honest if running a game is your main criteria then any windows laptop with a dGPU (NVIDIA 950M or better) will give you better gaming performance.

    Nah, my gaming rig and X1 are used for games, not my laptops. The only games I often play on my lap are Ragnarok and a few Dota 2 matches everyday. Most Windows laptops are either overspeced for my needs or have too little juice. That's why I turn to Mac. Good all-rounder

    I agree they are a good all rounder, thats just about your best bet then, to be honest in my opinion the 13 inch rMBP is currently the best performance/price/portability/battery life compromise you can currently get in a laptop.

    You may want to wait a few months though as skylake will add a fair boost too graphics in the 13 inch if very little else.

    Tks, but I think I will upgrade later whenever Skylake is available. My current financial status is a little tight leaving me no room to maneuver. Not to mention I'm going abroad in the next month so I kinda need to buy now

    Well, on Apple site, a brand new 13 inch RMBP is $1,299 which is $200 higher than my dealer promised

    Specks? B&H Photo has early 2015 13.3 rmbp $1,149 no tax free shipping, I would do that if specs are the same. I'd pay the extra $50 for piece of mind.
