I currently have a mid 2009 13" MacBook Pro. It has the 2.26 dual core CPU, 4gb RAM, nvidia geforce 9400, and 1tb HDD (upgraded the hard drive around 2 years ago from 160gb). I am now considering ordering the 15" macbook pro retina, fully loaded (2.6 quad i7, 16gb RAM, 1tb SSD. My question is, is the dedicated GPU, the GTX750 worth it? Is it that much better than the Iris Pro? I'm a university student, so I game a little bit, but not all the time. I'm buying this laptop for school and video editing, but gaming on the side would be nice to have, just not necessary. Will upgrading the GPU be worth it in this case? I don't play the latest games. I have no expectations to be even attempting to run BF4 or anything like that on my new macbook. I play less intense games and some of them I've even had success with the setup I am using now listed above. I beat star wars knights of the old republic on my 09 macbook, and while it didn't run amazing, I still played the whole game through and had a great time. and thats with the nvidia 9400. Games I play now are mostly RTS's such as Age of Mythology, Star Wars: Empire at War, and some MMO's. I can actually run star wars the old republic mmo on my current setup, but the frameright is pretty bad and the game is laggy overall. I know that I'm upgrading from an over 4 year old computer so whatever I get is going to feel much faster and smoother. What do you think? Is the GTX750 enough of an improvement to warrant the upgrade? And while the games I play are not very graphic intensive games, if the card is capable of playing better games, I wouldn't be against playing some newer ones. But like I said I'm not expecting crysis or BF4 to run very well. Not sure if it would help with video editing either, which is something I am going to be doing increasingly more starting early next year.
