This Christmas, I'll be getting myself a new Macbook Pro, to replace my current mid-2008 Macbook, which I've treated like dogshit, and I can start to tell it's on it's last breaths. First of all, don't give me "Don't buy a mac for gaming, herg-da-gerg" I KNOW PCs are better for gaming! I just think OS X is a gajillion times better than windows 7, and I won't be using it just for gaming, it's just a big part. Now the way I see it, is the regular Macbook Pro 15" will support better graphics with a higher framerate, because it has a lot lower resolution, yet the same graphics card and cpu as the rMBP. Plus, having a CD drive is a pretty big thing to me to. Right now I have my eyes totally set on the Macbook Pro 15", because looking at the specs, I believe it will have better gaming performance, it has a disc drive, and it's cheaper.
