    After I have read this threadhttp://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1478280
    I have gotten some new ideas of the timing of buying a MacBook pro retina 13
    ,but I am still considering whether buy it or not now.(the main reason is haswell..)

    Now, I just want to ask a question: would this MBPr 13 afford to some games like call of duty...FIFA...diablo...?

    If you're willing to wait a year for Haswell, then by the time Haswell rMBP's are released you might be willing to wait another year for Broadwell.

    It's probably not the best purchase if your main usage is for games. It'll run older games just fine, but diablo 3 at retina resolution will probably be a bit laggy.

    buy when you need, yes the HD 4000 can do some gaming on low settings

    you have to use low resolutions to play games on the HD 4000. If you need now, buy now, if not haswell should bring us a good improvement, as sb to ivy brought us.


    here are some benchies with the 4000
