    I don't think basing your reasoning on purchasing a $1,000 laptop on whether it can play Tomb Raider or not is a good idea.

    But,
    Recommended Requirements:

    Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8
    • DirectX 11 graphics card with 1GB Video RAM:
    - AMD Radeon HD 4870
    - nVidia GTX 480
    • Quad core CPU:
    - AMD Phenom II X2 565
    - Intel Core i5-750
    • 4GB Memory
    • 10GB Hard Drive space

    The integrated graphics on the MBP will probably struggle to run Tomb Raider. I expect it will work on low settings though.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jDyi4AHVMLE it definitely plays on low settings, averaging at about 30fps dipping into the low 20s at times and maxing at maybe 36fps... based on a quite comparable laptop (assume you meant 2.5ghz for clock speed, really don't think any mbp w/ hd 4000 exist @ 1.5ghz but i dont' even pay attention to the 13" macs)

    Both those graphics card will run circles around the Intel 4000HD without even breaking a sweat.

    The 13" Mac Laptops are NOT gaming machines, period. I wouldn't expect the game to run very well, even at the very lowest graphics settings.

    If you want to game, don't get a Macbook. Or a laptop for that matter

    looks good that, but why are majority of high end windows laptops you see still only managing 3 hours battery?

    alright, pay $1000 and get a Intel HD 4000. Tell me how good that runs games.

    I think the problem is that you're not looking in the right places. The majority of laptops I looked at back in 2011 had 5 hours of battery life, were under $1000, and that was with a dedicated GPU.

    Intel HD graphics is the most basic graphics solution offered in this generation.

    13" Macbook Pro will only run the game with no lag in lowest (or close to lowest) graphics configuration possible.

    In fact, the 2013 Tomb Raider does not even run natively on OS X. Therefore, if you are looking for a laptop that can play games in the similar budget line, you should probably consider windows based laptops with better graphics solutions.

    This link provides a list of mobile graphics solutions ranked based on their performance benchmarks indexed by game framerates. It should be a good reference.

    Or spend that 1000USD and build your own rig...
    You can get a pretty good gaming PC with that.

    If you are just looking to game, Mac is not the best option nor cost efficient.

    Yeah, pay $1800 and get a 650m, which is the equivalent of a desktop 640, mind you. Which is a very low end card. Sorry, I guess I'm kidding myself; you are getting your money's worth :rolleyes:

    Or are you talking about the iMac with the 675mx? I mean sure, you can pay $2000 for a 660ti equivalent (mid-high range; not bad). Whatever floats your boat. Although, you could pay half the price and get much better performance and build your own PC. You'll always have the thinnest desktop computer, I guess. (If you can find a use for that)
