I've got an order in with Apple right now for the new Retina Macbook (I opted for an upgraded model: 2.6GHZ processor, 16 GB Ram), and I'm excited to get the computer but am starting to doubt if it's where my money is best spent. I have slowly been purchasing apple products over the past year. I have an iPhone4/Ipad3/2AppleTVs, but I don't own a Mac computer. I imagine that getting a mac is the next logical step so that I can manage all of my devices from a computer (especially with all the integration across devices seems to be increasing). I'm also the owner of a slightly dated desktop HP (2.6 Ghz, Intel Core 2 Duo, 8 Gb Ram, Nvidia 9500 GT 1 GB) that I use to primarily to play blizzard games (Starcraft, Warcraft, Diablo). It performs fine with these games but I have to lower the graphics in order to make it run smoothly. I'm hoping that the Macbook Pro will blow away my old computers performance. I'm wondering if it would be more logical buying a $999 mac-air for compatibility and portability. Then spending the two grand on a dedicated desktop gaming PC? I have a nice 24-inch monitor on the desktop so I could afford to spend all of the 2grand on hardware for a dedicated gaming PC. Obviously the PC would blow away the performance of a MacBook when it comes to game performance. That in mind I like the portability, compatibility, sex appeal and all-in-one solution of the Retina Macbook. I can solve the first two issues by getting an air, but it won't have the Retina Display, it won't have as much processing power, and it isn't the "flagship" of apple products. It's usefulness would also be marganalized because it wouldn't be my go to for gaming. I'm hoping that I could get some advice about my dilemma. If anyone could suggest and link a dedicated gaming PC that runs 2 grand that would be helpful. I would also appreciate some input concerning gaming on an air - can it run diablo 3? I'm not familiar with apple laptops or desktops and also curious about how much more I would get out of one already owning an iPad and iPhone?
