Hi, everyone! I've had a Dell Inspiron laptop for about 4 years now and have decided to go with a Macbook Pro after much thought on whether the PC or Mac fits my style. The reason I've decided to go with it is because of the sleek OS, excellent applications (like Garage Band), and more. On my Inspiron, I only did a lot of basic activities like use Word and surf the internet. However, with a new computer, I'm looking to use music, photo, and video editing applications more often and do some gaming here and there. I've done a lot of research, talked to a computer-savvy friend I know, and have decided I definitely want to do this. The problem is that I'm not sure what specs I need. The important thing to know is that I plan on playing several Indie games (like Amnesia) and would also love to play something like Skyrim. After seeing gameplay videos of it on Macbook Pros, it looks like it runs pretty well. The thing is that the specs I'm planning on buying could make games like that run even better. So, what do you think of this set-up? And just to let you know, this is the "Mid-2012 Macbook Pro" (not the Retina Display one). Macbook Pro: 15 Inch 2.6GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.6GHz 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2x4GB 750GB Serial ATA Drive @ 7200 rpm NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M with 1GB of GDDR5 memory Is this more than enough for what I set out to do? By using Bootcamp to get Windows 7, would games like Skyrim run really well? Could I save money by downgrading on something that I might not need? I would immensely appreciate your help on this because there's a lot of money on the line here (this adds up to about $2,500 with the Anti-Glare screen and Applecare Protection Plan added as well). Thanks for helping out a newbie to Apple's computers!
