    So excited for fallout 4 and am about to pre-order but thought i would double check.

    I will be running it on;
    • 2.8GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 4.0GHz
    • 16GB 1600MHz DDR3L SDRAM
    • 512GB PCIe-based Flash Storage
    • Intel Iris Pro Graphics + AMD Radeon R9 M370X with 2GB GDDR5 memory
    Of course through bootcamp with windows 10.

    the requirements for fallout 4 are;

    • MINIMUM:
      • OS: Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit OS required)
      • Processor: Intel Core i5-2300 2.8 GHz/AMD Phenom II X4 945 3.0 GHz or equivalent
      • Memory: 8 GB RAM
      • Graphics: NVIDIA GTX 550 Ti 2GB/AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB or equivalent
      • Hard Drive: 30 GB available space

    • RECOMMENDED:
      • OS: Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit OS required)
      • Processor: Intel Core i7 4790 3.6 GHz/AMD FX-9590 4.7 GHz or equivalent
      • Memory: 8 GB RAM
      • Graphics: NVIDIA GTX 780 3GB/AMD Radeon R9 290X 4GB or equivalent
      • Hard Drive: 30 GB available space

    reckon I can get away with medium settings? if not I am not sure if I will pre-order, looks like they have put so much work into creating such a beautiful setting and if I cant appreciate at least half of the beauty with medium settings then i would rather not play!

    thoughts please.

    Not a chance it'd run smoothly on medium settings. The HD 7870 stipulated in the minimum benchmarks is about 200% more powerful than the R9 M370X in your laptop. Macs just aren't gaming machines. You'd get better performance spending ~£500 to build a cheap gaming rig.

    usually, the recommended settings are the mid-high settings (not ultra or maxxed, just for comfort gaming) so i guess you will get mid range fps on medium setts. Keep in mind that this specific Radeon can perform worse than basic mass GPUs and overheat.

    Try similar games with such recommended settings and you will see the close to real performance

    That graphics card in the minimum requirements is a desktop GPU that is a lot more powerful than youir mobile one you might get reasonable frame rates (30-40fps) at low settings but don't expect too much from any thin light laptop even a razer blade would struggle with that game.

    Spending $350 doesn't really answer the OP's question.

    Actually it does. Spend less for a true gaming console and don't even think a MacBook Pro will give anyone gaming pleasure.
