Hi guys! I want to buy a MacBook pro before "Back to school" stops and I'm not completely sure which one, yet. However, I already know I definitely want a 15 inch MacBook Pro Retina which sounds about perfect to me. I'll be using it for University as well as work (software development, including running Windows in a VM for some of the tasks). However, I'm arguing with myself about wheter to get the version with the dedicated GPU or not. For everything that is not gaming I 100% know that I will not need the 750M, meaning the 750M will not impact battery life and as far as I know there is the possibility to disable the 750M completely for some time, right? This means the 750M will mainly be used to play one of the following games: Hearthstone Diablo 3 World of Warcraft Elder Scrolls Online Divinity: Original Sin Now they are no the most graphically intense games which still look kind of good on lower settings due to their more artistic nature. That being said, I do need ~60 FPS for smooth gaming and hate playing games at 30 FPS. However, what I seriously care about is Heat and Fan Noise and I didn't really find a comparison of Iris Pro vs 750M in those areas, so my questions would be: - Is the MacBook with a 750M any louder than the normal one? I'd guess probably not, because they have the same cooling and the fans probably run at the same maximum speed - which is probably reached on both of them after some time of gaming. - Does the MacBook with a 750M get noticeably hotter? I'd guess yes, as they have the same cooling, but it will have to dissipate more heat due to the 750M. So yeah, what is your take on it? Price difference is 1760 vs 2200 using Apple on Campus. I do get double the SSD storage (256GB vs 512) as well as upgraded CPU, but I wouldn't really need those.
